Can you open the file to try to edit it? It might be security issues. See if you can open the file on the computer and then save it with a slightly different name and try to move it over again or you could try to save it right to the USB drive.
Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"
