I cannot use my backup files

I cannot use my Cubase backup files

Hello I I would appreciate some help with a problem that a rose after my external hard drive began to malfunction. Although I can open the Files from my back up drive I cannot use them to record or access my audio files. . An error message reads “ disc is full “ when I attempt to record or save.
Thanks

Hi,

To me it sounds like you have the Read permissions, but you don’t have the Write permissions.

Thanks for your response.I believe you are right, but how do I re establish permission?

Hi,

This is a task for your system. Are you in Mac or Windows?

In both, you can set the folder permission by right-clicking on it. In Windows, you choose the Properties option, on Mac, you choose the Get Info option.
