It looks like the data from the hard drive became corrupted, but you can recover almost all from it.
First, try and fix the errors on the drive, by right click on the drive letter, click on Tools tab and check now. Tick automatically fix errors and start it.
If this won't get your files back, then you will need to use a recovery software to do that. Some good programs to do that are GetBackData or Undelete. You can download Hiren's Boot CD and use the recovery tools found on the disk:

I cannot create folders on my external Lacie harddisk

My suggestion would be to copy all the data to another drive temporally. Then reformat the lacie drive using your new computer, install truecrypt, move the data back over. The issue could have to do with the filesystem of your hard drive.

I have a shared folder with files in it. I disabled one share, then the rest of the shared folders went gone. how will I recover the data in it?

Hi sej_nb5,

A shared folder is only a way to access data files from multiple computers. If you are using the external drive, you will need to go and click on ":My Computer" and then find that drive, It will be called "E drive" or "F drive" in the list, and when you click on that drive you will have access to the entire drive, and you will need to navigate to those folders and files. You can re-share the drive when you get to the folder that you want by right clicking and choosing share.

Good Luck,

Lacie extern. hard drive is recognized, but I can't access files

Try connecting the Lacie to another computer, if it doesn't work then the hard disk may need to be formatted using Disk Manager. I suggest you format as a primary partition in FAT32.
If it doesn't work then it is possible that the hard drive in the Lacie has failed.
To test the hard drive, remove it and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If it deosn't detect it as an external drive and you connot open folders and files then it is faulty.
You can install a new hard drive in the Lacie and then format in FAT32
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

If the disk is FULL then you have used all the space, this is not uaually a fault but you may need to look at the data on there and delete any old stuff you dont need. IF you need it all then you should buy a larger capacity drive.

use "my computer" to see the drives connected to your PC. The lacie should be easily identified by it's name. Double click on the drive and you can explore the files/folders.

Lacie 320 GB Hard Drive acting as if full when it's not.

Simplest solution: back up the data on the drive and repartition it (which will wipe it). Otherwise it sounds like it could be a problem with the file tree or structure of the drive, the configuration files could be corrupt, some program could have stored temporary files in a hidden place that cannot be deleted without making the program delete them, etc. If you are on a mac, spotlight Disk Utility and use it to repartition. If you are on a PC use the search thing from the start menu and find a program called disk management (or something similar to that, you'll know it when you see it.) external drives are annoying. i kick mine into the wall periodically for good measure.
