Is file a countable noun?
Yes the word file is countable. For example you can say: We have many files. or We have one file. Therefore it's countable. The noun water on the other hand isn't countable because you can't drink many waters. You can drink many bottles of water or drops of water, but water by itself isn't countable.
Is candy countable or uncountable noun?
Prescriptive grammar says candy is non-countable. However, I think in colloquial English, both countable and non-countable forms are perfectly acceptable: 1) I like candy. 2) Pass me a candy. To test that "candy" is non-countable in example No. 1, try replacing it with a word that is widely accepted as countable: I like apple. [incorrect sentence] Grammarians may argue that example No. 2 pass me a candy is sloppy English, but I suspect most would agree that pass me a piece of candy does not sound natural. A user from a website gives the example how much candies do u want, which is indeed incorrect but because she's using the countable form of "candy" by making it plural. The sentence can be rewritten as: How much candy do u want? In other words, "candy" is non-countable in formal English, but can be used as either countable or non-countable in informal English. And, yes, formal English would dictate the construction pass me a piece of candy.
