I have a 1 TB portable hard drive which I have always used on windows. I recently plugged it into my friend’s MAC laptop to transfer some movies onto his computer. After doing this it seems like my hard drive is stuck in ‘read only’ format. I can’t delete or transfer files from it anymore. Also the movie folder that I opened on the MAC book has been completely emptied, almost like it has been corrupted. My hard drive still loads up onto my windows computer (very slowly) but I am unable to do anything with my files. It stops responding and freezes everytime I try and open folders up on it.
Is there any way to fix this without reformatting and losing everything?!?
