Hi. I’m in a real jam. I had to install a new hard disk drive and reintall Windows 7 Pro 64-bit OS. The internal WD drive is working fine. Everything else seems to be working fine.
The only things I’ve done since then were to install…
– AVG Internet Security (Paid version) -latest version-.
– OpenOffice.org -latest version- (so that I could gain access to my saved (Calc) program files).
– Yahoo Mail program.
However, when trying to access my Western Digital “Elements” 500GB External USB drive , I noticed that only 2 of the 4 custom folders with their contents (which I created before the new installs on my new main drive) are visible in Windows 7 Pro 64-bit “Explorer” on the external HDD. Where did they go? Why can’t I see them?
How do I regain access to and use of the 2 folders (and maybe others?) that are no longer visible via Windows Explorer (NOT Internet Explorer!)?
I need those folders/files desperately, since they contain vital information.
