Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Won't show files

\015 I have a WD external hard drive. When I plug it into my computer & open the drive, it shows nothing on it, but when I go to my computer, then right click the drive, it shows that I DO have files on it (& I do). Is there anything I can do? Thanks!\015

Answers :

Looks like the structure to allow a boot on the device has become unusable. That's the bad news. The good news is that with proper recovery programs or a data recovery center you can most likely recover the data... for a price. I'd take it to someone who can look at the drive and give you an estimate before doing any work. My company just shipped a drive out with a similar problem for recovery at a price of $1,500.00. My client learned an expensive lesson in backing up his laptop.
