Hi

I have a 2tb external that now refuses to show me my files when I explore the drive. I have contacted seagate but none of their sollutions amount to anything. My pc is conneted to the drive and I can still copy data to the drive but there is now 700gb which seems to be occupied that I cannot see! When you test the drive, I can see the files names it's running through but no amount of unplugging, rebooting ect. is solving my problem.

Please help I need this data!

Hello,

Try this 1.

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

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

Now check for your files in External Drive.

Good Luck.
