Question about Western Digital Passport 320GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
I have same problem where previously I accidently use the command "chkdsk /f g:"as taught by another website. After that I only found out that part of my file is lost. and a folder name FOUND.000 is found. Is there are any way to retrieve back original data before the check disk program run?
Maybe. Best solution would be to get a copy of Ontrack Data Recovery. It's not free and there are a lot of others but I have found this one program to work in more cases than not. It can even do a "Raw" recovery if you don't mind getting back your file(s) in pieces. Mostly it depends on what kinf of file it was and how large. The larger it was, the less likely to be able to recover.

Go to the Windows Command Prompt. You can do this by clicking first the Start button and then clicking the Run button. After this, type "cmd" in the Open text box and press Enter.

If you want CHKDSK to fix errors and not to check bad sectors, type:
and press Enter in the Command Prompt.
If you want CHKDSK to run thoroughly; that is, fix errors, find bad sectors in your hard drive and recuperate still readable data, type:
CHKDSK c:/r or
CHKDSK c:/p and press Enter in the Command Prompt.
Initialize the properties of the hard drive you want CHKDSK to run. Open My Computer. Right click your mouse on the drive in which you want CHKDSK to run. Click the Properties button and click the Tools tab. In the Error-checking box, click the Check Now button.
Set up the Check Disk options by checking one or both check boxes displayed. These are labeled "automatically fix file system errors" and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors". If you want CHKDSK to run in read-only mode, do not check either box. After this, click the Start button.
