Open Question

Cannot See Files

I have a Cavalry 160GB storage, and it is filled with about 50 GB of data. Up until today, it was working fine. Now, I can only see one folder out of many that were stored on my hard drive. I know that the files are still there, because when I click on properties, it says the space is used up, and I can access the files through third party programs (i.e. playing a song in iTunes).

So, in short, in windows explorer, I cannot see the files, and cannot load any of them when I directly look for them.

Thanks for the help.

    Hi dmaster06130, I want to help you with your question, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box? Such as OS version, is your 160GB drive internal or external, have you tried restart or shutdown & start again, did you happen to change "view" selection in explorer window?

My Cavalry 1TB USB 2.0 external hard drive will not connect to my computer. I have not had it for long, possibly 2 months. It worked fine all day today but tonight the blue light does not turn on. It...

Hey Jeff,
Sounds like this is something with info you need to keep..Keeping/securing/BACKING UP your data is your priority!! Personally, I would find a QUALITY (ASK a lot of questions.. can they guarantee their work,,- and NOT LOSE your data..!!) .. skip the geek squad - .. computer repair shop..(or some 10 year old).. I would first see if they could copy this drive to another drive (solid state) so you will not lose your data... we are at 4.0 with USB now... 2.0 is becoming the "floppy" of today..I have 3.0 drives and feel left out.. again.. securing/copying/backing up your data is paramount.. Good luck,,,

I have a cavalry CAUE37500 500GB 2.0 that I have literally used less than 50 times since I bought it a few years ago. I haven't used it for the last 6 months, but thought it was a good time to delete...

> ticking of a watch ...

A typical sound from a disk-drive that has malfunctioned.

If it still has a valid WARRANTY, exercise the warranty to get it repaired/replaced.

If the warranty has expired, then open the case, remove the disk-drive, buy a new "compatible" disk-drive, connect it, and thus "revive" your external storage device.

External hard drive will not power on

The adapter case could be faulty but the hard drive may be OK.
Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug the adapter into a working computer's USB port and if this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files, then the hard drive is OK and you only need to buy a new USB hard drive adapter case.
If the hard drive is faulty, and the data is very important to you, there are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I have data on my CAVALRY ext storage hard drive(250GB). I power it up and try to access but the message comes up saying 'reformat the disk before use'. I cannot access any of my data. What do I do?

sounds like it's time for a disk recovery exercise. Check the repair directory on fixya for your zip code. That's about all you can do at this point. Hope you had it backed up.

500G Cavalry CAUE37500 Drive intermittently recognized

Keep them in the freezer for 3 hours and connect to your system and transfer your data. If drive starts behaving like this, it means you have to transfer the data.
