Why can’t I copy files from my laptop to external drive? When I copy it says that the file is no more in the computer. What should I do?

    What you should do is tell us the exact error message.

    are they actual files that you can open or are shortcuts, maybe the files were deleted and not present in your pc?
    which version of windows you have.
    for checking just create a new file, then try copy paste.
