I transfered 250gb of important videos on seagate external hard drive, and 5 days later I try to access them and the drive is empty. 931gb of 931gb are free!!!! Unbelievable, as the day I transfered them I checked to see if they play and they did. Today the drive is empty. Please help, it's a matter of great importance. Thank you

Follow the steps below to do that:

Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your External

hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your External hard drive and also from

the drives.

Step 2:

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

Here I assume your External hard drive 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 : Replace the letter g with your External hard drive letter.

Now check for your files in External Drive.
