Click on Start --> In search box, type control folders and press Enter.

[If you are using Windows XP then type control folders in Run and press Enter]

"Folder Options" will be opened. Click on the "View" tab.

Now select the option "Show hidden files, folders or drives" and uncheck the

check box "Hide protected operating system files" --> Click on "OK" button.

Now look for your files in your external drive.

Later undo the changes you have made by once again going to "Folder Options"

--> Click on "View" tab and click on "Restore Defaults" button --> Click on "OK".

Hello Manish,

Have you correctly followed the volume creation process, the wrong process could lead the data loss problem. Therefore, I suggest you to use data recovery software to recover your data first and then format that drive by going through disk management and recreate new volumes on that physical hard drive.
