What will i do in a brand new external hdd from freecom with 298 G,when i connect to my laptop dont show any icon,what is wrong with may external hdd?


please try unhide the settings..

Steps are as follows:

Open My computer,
Tools, Folder Options,
Check Show Hidden Files,
Check show system files..
Then check your files from the My computer icon..

The problem would be sometimes once your hard drive being infected by the virus, it will hide your files especially the NOTEPAD.EXE virus. It replicate your original folder and hide it, then it will show a copied folder which is also thesame with your original folder.(ex: the original folder would be PICTURES, then once it infected by the virus, the PICTURES folder will now replaced as NOTEPAD.EXE folder, then the original was been hide)..

Thanks
