Hello,
I borrowed a Hard drive that was always being used for a windows computer and i plugged it into my mac to save some files and when i returned the hard drive all the files are gone but if you check the info of the Hard drive it still says that there are files on it. (ex: 30gb left out of 500gb)
how do i find the files? :(

It appears the Mac re-formated the hard drive. For your information Macs and PCs use different partition formats. the only common format that can be read by both systems is FAT or FAT32.
