I’ve got about 450G of files on the MyBook and I was trying to clean up the drive and did something and can’t see any files now. If I look at the drive properties it says the used space is there, but when I click on the drive I can’t see a single thing. I was trying to figure out if there were hidden files on the drive that were taking up the space and thought I was trying to show the hidden files, but I think it did some kind of indexing. Now I can’t see a thing on the drive. Help please!!
Check the drive properties to see if the files are hidden…
Not seeing that option. I think what I had clicked on was “Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties.” Thoughts?
If your using a windows pc try to follow the instructions from this link, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Show-hidden-files
Found it via the help menu in folder options. Thanks,
