Question about Seagate FreeAgent Pro - 500GB, 7200 RPM, USB 2.0, eSATA, External 500 GB Hard Drive
My computer recognized this external disk . It reports of 465GB & 185GB of free space . When I copy file/directory to the disk - i can't see
them , but if I try to copy the same file/dir - i get a note that there is another file/dir with the same name , It means that the OS recognized the data stored in the disk , and the data was not erased !
I checked the disk with seagate diagnostic tools and it passed all the tests. Can I try to replace the disk driver w/o damaging the tata on it?
I have a windows xp pro.
Pls. help me see the disk unseen ( but existing ) data , and to be able to transfer data to the disk?
Thanks - Meni
It sounds disk I/O is creating problem refershing the contents in hard drive.
You can try changing the drive letter on your hard drive, might help.
Also, if any kind of corruption, you can try disk error checking scandisk
If nothing works, there is other way to see your data in cmd
go to Start->run->type "cmd" and hit enter
To go to your External drive's letter you should know the drive for eg, if your external drive letter is D Drive just type D: in cmd and hit enter. Now you will see he prompt D:\, type dir to list the directories and files in that directory/folder
If you are able to see your files in CMD, you can still back them up
