Hello,

My WD My passport 1 TB external hard disk is showing the error when I try to open drive. I am not able to see my all old data. I can see just two folders: 1) Recycler; 2) System Volume Information.

Please help me to solve the above mentioned issue as I have important files in my external hard disk.

Thank you!

Hello,

Try this 1.

Check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1:
Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"
https://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator
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.

Step 3:
After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link
https://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes
Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"
Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".


Good Luck!
