Try this 1.

Check whether the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your external hard disk drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your external hard disk drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

Now check for your files in external hard disk.

Good Luck.
