Hello,

Please help me as I have 10 years of saved items on this hard drive. My brother has did a check on the hard drive and it was checking 34 files and then checked empty space. The files ARE there as why would it check the 34 files.......but when I plug it in the F files show none of them. I have 10 years of family history research on this hard drive and its breaking my heart, have I lost everything. Please help me try and sort this, tried it on other PC's but nothing, it's saying file empty...........but why check 34 files if it's empty!!!!!!

Hello,
May be the files got converted to CHK files. Is it the ms-word files or the jpeg files that went missing? Let me know the extensions.
Good Luck
