USB 1TB Drive Folder Missing
by Diggar01 - 8/14/13 5:51 AM
I have a Seagate GoFlex 1TB drive that has been connected to my Dell Optiplex 755 Vista Business computer for over 1 year. I do backups to the drive but I also keep certain files and folders on the drive that are separate from the backups.
Never had a single problem until a short while ago. I went home with everything fine. I came back the next day and 1 file folder was missing. Everything else was there except for this 1 folder.
Now the folder contained numerous sub-folders and files so they are all missing. Not a trace.
From time to time I have had USB drives die or lose their mind and never had a problem recovering the data. I have used OnTrack and other software programs in the past and have usually found and recovered everything.
So I took the drive off the computer and opened the case, pulled the drive out and connected it to my computer at home.
I used Ontrack Pro to look through the drive and did not find any trace of the folder. Nothing.
So I tried other software programs and nothing, nada. Where has this folder gone? I mean vanished without a single trace on the drive and yet everything else is exactly as it has been for over a year.
If you can provide and help on what I may be able to do about this situation I would be extremely grateful.
Any help appreciated.
Thank you for your help in advance
