Hi lhadeenkar9,

Is this an external drive? Try the drive on another PC and with another cable. Any changes? Are there any problems trying to access the drive? Can you open other files stored on the hard drive? I recommend you to backup all important data and download some data recovery tool. Check the Downloads section of this forum for some suggestions:

If you manage to recover the files, back them up and format the hard drive. I recommend you to test it with the drive manufacturer’s diagnostic tool.

Hope this helps

thanks for the reply. sorry for late comment. yes, it was an external drive.. i didn't try to another PC because my other computer was not in condition.. its also broken. But i can open some files on my external drive but there is only one folder that i can't open. i will try what have you said. thanks and God bless :)
