Hello,

Right-click on your external drive --> Properties --> Does it shows your used space ?

Good Luck

Hello,

Try this 1

Check if the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run--> Type cmd and press Enter. "Command Prompt" will be opened.

[Note : If you are using Windows Vista or 7 then

Click on "Start" --> In search box, type cmd. When the cmd appears in the search list then

right-click on the cmd --> Select the option "Run as administrator".]

Here I assume your external drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

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

Now press enter.

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

Now check for your files in your external drive.

Good Luck
