    Generally, that error message comes up when you are using something such as FAT32 for your filesystem instead of HFS+. If you are using HFS+ on that volume, you may need to go in and do a disk repair as it is possible that something became corrupted.

    Would you mind pulling up Terminal and running the following command?

    ls -la /Volumes/<the_name_of_your_external_hd>
