Some time back I purchased a My Book Premium edition 500 GB external hard disk for the purposes of backing up data from my desktop and being able to access additional data that would have otherwise required many a CDRW.
Lately, in trying to access some of my old data on another machine, running Windows XP, I find that the computer does recognize the drive, recognizes that the drive has all but 52 GB free, but when I explore the drive, most of the folders that formerly contained data are listed as “empty”. All in all, the only accessible data amounts to less than 100 GB, but yet the drive still reads as having over 400 GB written.
I have no idea what my next move can be, is there any way to retrieve/rectify any of these things?
All comments/questions/help greatly welcomed and appreciated.
