Ok so I’ve scoured the posts on this forum so I apologize if this has been answered before, if so could someone please point me in the right direction! Here’s my situation:
I have a 1TB WD My Book Essential.
I’m running Vista 32-bit home edition
My external hard drive has been working fine for the past couple of months, I don’t use it as a back up I just use it to store my movies, pictures, and music. Last night I went to access my movies folder and Vista just kind of hung for a second and then prompted me to format the drive (which I declined). Now I can access all the other folders on my external hard drive just fine, but all of a sudden Vista won’t let me into my movies folder. And when I right click on the folder and go to properties it says its empty, but when I look at the free space on my hard drive its showing as if my data is still there. I’m not sure if this is some funky permissions thing all of a sudden or what, but if anybody has had this problem before please any advice would be greatly appreciated.
