Maxtor OneTouch II 250GB Dir. Corrupted

I have a Maxtor OneTouch II 250GB Dir. that only has about 50 GB of total use, part of it being the One Touch auto backup and three folders of manual My Documents backup. Most of the backups were accomplished in the last two days and following this activity the files were all visable and accessable, and then later in the evening another auto backup was run and following this shut down and later restarted to show the grand success of the backup operation only to find that the disk directory letter F: was visible but that the directory was corrupted and the file were not visible. With the disk manager, you see the F: and the disk size of 233 GB, healthy, but no files. ??? How do I fix this issue?
Thanks for the assistance,

because of the power off on that will have messed up your trans-fare in that it will have corrupted your hard drive if you can still access the drive reformat it then use a recovery software to get the deleted files even when its been formatted it still leaves a fingerprint so the files may still be there

Maxtor OneTouch 4 Mini 250GB External Drive Does not show up on my computer

I have a Onetouch Mini 4, operating fine on two computers with Windows XP but couldn't get it working on Windows 7. I plugged it in and it would be recognized but a message would come up saying there were errors and to scan. Tried scanning and not scanning and couldn't get the drive to work. If I tried to open it would give me the "access denied". I couldn't get to a security tab from a folder as none of them were working.
It ended up that I wasn't listed as an owner nor had any permissions so I needed to be added to the device.

Here is what I did -

System, device manager, disk drives, right click on onetouch, properties, volumes, populate, the select on touch volume, properties, security, advanced, change permissions, add, typed in my user name - hit checked names (it fixed the format), then hit ok.

Then make sure you set the permissions for all the users.
