Files Disappearing

Today is April Fool’s day, so I guess I had it coming:cry:

I have had this WD My Passport Wireless 2TB for around half a year now without major problems. After installing Remix OS (an Android operating system designed to work on the PC platform), I had decided to check out whether the MPW could actually work in that OS. After successive mounting and remounting, the OS recognised it but no files were shown.

Returning to Windows, I mounted my MPW straight away, only finding myself stranded with all my personal files disappearing, nowhere to be found (only LOST.DIR remained). The display name for the drive reverted back to its original as well.

I am currently in the process of trying out Easeus Data Recovery, hoping to salvage every last bit of the precious documents and photos.

Has anyone run into the same situation before?

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.

I was unable to locate similar posts within the WD Community. Your unit is still accessible; so there’s still hope when using a data recovery program.

If needed, you can contact a professional data recovery service company for assistance.
