I just bought a new Toshiba laptop with I7, 750 GB in HD 8GB in RAM and Windows 8. My external drive (My Book Essential with 3 TB) was used in an old Toshiba with windows XP, it works fine no problem, but at the moment I connected it to the new laptop and unlocked it all the folders created in the old laptop appears only as a shorcut pointing to “C:\Windows\System32”. No idea what is wrong.
As a matter of fact I create a new folder inside the WD external drive and copy a file into it, then I disconnected it from the new laptop with Win 8 and plugged it in the old laptop with Win XP, I was able to read the folder created with Win 8.
Any idea will be really appreciated.
