A big folder went missing from my HDD, right in front of my eyes and now I can't find it.All other small folders are still there.
I have tried Recuva and unhiding folders. no success. Please help people!
P.S Most of the questions like this, which I saw were old so can you please give an updated latest solution.

Try this:

Open Start and typing CMD to open Command Prompt Window;
Type “chkdsk g:/f” (if the external hard drive is Driver g:), click Enter;
Now, it will start repairing damaged files, it will ask if you want to save lost chains into another location. Click "Yes".
