I made an image of a PC to a 120GB Maxtor USB 2.0. drive. The image was written into 9 seperate files about 2GB each. I then transfer the files off to another external drive a 160GB ADS Tech. USB 2.0. drive kit. Now the problem is that the files are now in a folder that i renamed from "acronis" to "archive" and the files cannot be copied renamed or be modified in anyway. Any suggestions? TIA

check file permissions with attrib? maybe file permissions don't let you rename nor move. also, try booting into safe mode or boot from a bootable floppy.

Run a chkdsk on the drive.  The MFT pointers may be juggled.  Once you've done that, if you still can't get at them, use Windows Backup to copy the files to another destination.  If that doesn't work, you might have to use a disk recovery program to yank the files.

so far ive used Recover My Files program and was able to look at the files. I did try to scan the computer but it took too long to try to find the files again. Finally, i connected the drive to a laptop and it moved to the root directory. But, it is slow. Grant it its on a Dimension 4100 256MB of RAM 800MHz but 20MB/min? its says time elapsed: 3:37 time remaining 13:40. The file size now is at 4260 out of 16056. Any suggestions?
