Question about Western Digital Passport WDXML800UE (WDXML800UETE) 80 GB Hard Drive
I have a Gateway laptop w/XP and Western Digital Passport external hard drive 250 Gb. My computer crashed on me this morning and when I tried to get back in to the external drive all files were gone.
I have Folder Lock installed on the external and it was unlocked at the time of the crash.
Explorer shows the drive (F) but shows no files, not even Folder Lock. However, it indicates I have 129 Gb free space, which means the files should still be there, right?
I tried reinstalling Folder Lock on the drive, but still nothing.
I ran Pandora Recovery but it shows nothing on the disk.
I ran Trend Micro (w/all updates) I ran Webroot (w/all updates)
I ran CCleaner
I tried System Recovery - nothing changed. I went back 3 days - should I go back farther? Will it make any difference?
The drive has a variety of files on it - jpg, avi, doc, txt, mp3/4, etc.
With over 100 Gb on the disk, they can't have been deleted - that would have taken quite a long time. The files have to be there, but how do I recover them?
Hi All had the same prob with my external drive and used a program called Easy recovery professional it worked for me .hope this works
