Only some are missing? If you can access the drive and see or download some of the files, it probably means the other files are not there. I have found it is easy to move files when transferring from one device to the other, when I meant to copy them. Perhaps this is what happened. If the drive was bad, or some other mechanical issue, I doubt you would be able to access any files.

SOURCE: Problem with seeing files on external Hard drive

What has happened is that your file system on the hard drive became corrupt becasue windows had not updated the MFT on the drive. THe MFT is a table of contents regarding whats on your drive.

What happened is similar to someone cutting out a few pages of the table of contents in a book that has a lot of pages.

Windows tried to fix this stupid programming method by asking people to always use the "safely remove hardware" button in the taskbar to force it to update the MFT.
In this case yur a victim of the Hard Discs MFT not updating properly probably because software was accessing the drive when it was disconnected from the machine.

You need to run chkdsk to have it rebuild your MFT.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265 <-- How to perform Check disk
*NOTE: Remember to use the drive letter that the USB External is on.. Not just type CHKDSK. It will default to drive C to scan for errors. ex: c:\chkdsk g: (where g is the drive your external usb is)
If you get an error like "CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives.. see my notes below.
Beware that it will take a LONG TIME to perform this procedure.

If this doesn't fix it.. contact a data recovery specialist.. It's worth the cost. There are two types. Simple and Advanced.
Simple= recovering files your deleted with the delete button (fairly easy with the right software)
Advanced = recovering files from a hard disk crash or file system corruption. (Not easy and very time consuming)

Hi,

Try doing flea power & the power cycle.

1. Disconnect all the peripherals like keyboard,mouse,printer, scanner & monitor and power supply from the CPU.

And press & hold the power button for 2 min, it will release the flea power from the mother board.

Restart the system & check.

2. Disconnect everything.wait for 5-10 minutes and then connect every thing.

Restart the system.

If it does not resolve the issue then you can try this : 

Check this before you try to edit the registry values. 

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Darwin/Reference/ManPages/man1/profiles.1.html

Just remove the registry key it happen when this key is corrupted.

HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USBSTOR

And delete all references to the external hard drive. 

And also HLKM\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB 

and found the keys associated with the USB to IDE value.

After restarting the system, the drive should be detected & configured automatically by the computer.

Disclaimer : I will not be held responsible for anything that happens to your computer as a result of following my guide. Use this guide at your own discretion and risk.

Also if you still need driver: 

This is the best way to download the drivers of all your devices which are connected to the system for free.

You can download the Driver Magician from this link :

http://www.toggle.com/lv/group/view/kl34858/Driver_Magician.htm

Download the reg key from this link :

http://public.box.net/paul123

then doule click & select ok.

Run the program and select update drivers, it will list the list of pdated drivers.

Select the drivers and select download drivers.

If it does not download just select the driver you need and at the bottom you would see a link,

Just copy that link and download from your browser or download manager, I use orbit downloader.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

Is there a reader for backup files you do not want to restore


You need the software that you used to back it up unless you simply copied files directly.

Most backup software creates it own backup format and extension that only its restore software or emergency boot disk can read.

Hi, I bought a Seagate GoFlex a couple of days ago and successfully backed up my Mac at home. However, when I went to use the GoFlex on my PC at university, the PC was not reading the goflex. Thanks.


Did you reformat the FreeAgent drive when you backed up the Mac? If you use Time Machine or other backup software for the Mac, you had to reformat the drive. If you want the PC to read the disc, it must be formatted in a FAT32 or NTFS file system. The Mac OS formats discs in the HFS+ (extended hard drive format) system.

Unfortunately, if you reformat the disc to a Windows compatible format, you will lose your current backup. The drive will be as a large media transfer disc but not for the backup images. This site, http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/macnexstar.html , has information on splitting the hard drive into two partitions, one HFS+ and one FAT32. Then you could have your backup on one part of the GoFlex and still transfer files from the Mac to the PC and vice versa.

I hope this helps.

I have a 230 gb FreeAgent Go external drive.


Hi,

I think the solution that meeknotweak gave is a little bit twisted. First and foremost you can not be able to format a 230gb hard drive as a FAT or even FAT32 simply because that FAT and FAT32 is only set to be used and can be used only if your drive is less than 40gb. If your drive is larger than 40gb then the only option is to format it using NTFS.

Second you can be able to format and set the volume format of the drive under the ERASE tab of the DiscUtility on Mac. Not in "RAID" tab.

This is the right way to do it......

If you plan to use the external HD into a PC or Mac, you should first plug it into a Mac Computer and format it using the Disc Utility. Choose the Erase Tab and select Volume Fomat. Make sure that you choose MS DOS. Only Mac OS can format a drive of any size to a FAT file system. If you have already formatted it you can now be able to use it vice versa.

One more thing if the HD is formatted as NTFS, Mac OS can read it but can't write on the drive. So that's why you need to make it as a FAT so that it would be readable and writable to both OS. Also make sure that the folders and files that you're transferring into the HD doesn't contain special characters. Mac OS can recognize those special characters on a file but windows can't.

I hope this clarifies everything.
