Well, it is one of the errors that very little is solved, so it is important that you know what the error 0x80071ac3 means. Also called “The operation could not be completed because the volume is corrupted” and it has to do directly with the internal storage.
Whether it’s from the hard drive, the flash drive or any other external drive and it’s usually tedious because you can’t access your files. As you typically do, you will most likely despair if you have not previously made a backup.
What Is Error 0x80071ac3?
You may be confused about what the error 0x80071ac3 means, although it should always happen to you on your other storage units. People immediately see it as unusable without knowing that it is something that can be restored if you follow the corresponding steps.
You could even try it yourself, although in general it is an error that happens when you are going to copy a file from the hard drive to an external drive. Or otherwise, it can also happen vice versa and here you will find an explanation to solve it in less than you think.
How Do I Fix Error 0x80071ac3?
There are several options to do if copying the file fails, and instead of getting rid of the pen drive you should try it on your own. Soon you will find the most specific explanation about the options you should put into practice in a case like that.
Open the Full and Necessary Access for the Unit
To verify that the incoming file has full access and is not the error, you must click the folder you need with the right click. Go to the properties/security option and where it says edit to allow access and once approved save the changes and try it.
Repair Disk Errors
This is one of the options that works the most and consists of checking that the disk is fine and for that, you must press the windows key with the “x”. Then type chkdsk x: /r /f and press enter (change the letter x to the one that represents the disk) and finally press enter to correct errors and you can try again.
Change the USB port
This is the easiest option, but you should still consider it since some ports on your PC are probably not recognizing properly. External drive, if that is the reason, then by changing its port, the PC can recognize it successfully.
Disable ReadyBoost Feature
Another problem that can arise in these cases is that your removable drive has the ReadyBoost function active and prevents its use. In this case, you should open windows explorer and right-click on the device, go to the properties option and then on the readyBoost tab to disable.
