Can you not put them back into the old folder?

just tried dragging back and not sure if im doing it right, ive gone into works, open, clicked on file n tried to drag it but a black circle comes up, tried dragging it further along but no luck. Do you know how to save them as another file name cos id rather change them all n dump works 7 its rubbish.

You could try changing the file format,but that may make them unreadable in any program,Try copy and paste instead of dragging that way you leave the original files where they are and make copies of them in the other folder.To change the file type you can right click the file and select properties then add the extension you need on the end of the file name
E.G: my.rtf, instead of, my.wps,but i dont know what this would do to the file or even if it would work,and it may make it unusable.

i tried to rename it but it said access denied. actually the ones i did cut and paste are ok and the ones i dragged wont open. i dont know what else to do!

Try making copies of the ones you dragged,copy/paste all the files you need to the other folder and overwrite when asked.
Make sure you have backups of the files before you overwrite them.

it still says access denied, could it have been corrupted by moving it?

It is a possability,open the file folder where the files are stored,dont open works and try it that way because they will be in use and it may not work.
What gives you the accsess denied message?
