a few days ago i had to reformat my computer. i wanted to save some files so i dragged them into my external harddrive, unfortunately i had a serious re-occurring error which is why i needed to reformat in the first place where my computer would just restart. So while I was copying over the folders it would restart and i'd go back in and try to copy more over hoping to get as much as i could without it restarting again. After i got some files into my external harddrive i checked them to see if it did actually copy anything over even though it was interrupted and there were files in the folders, so it seemed everything was fine. then i reformatted and checked my external harddrive and the folders were all there, except when i click on them it says "F:/(name of folder) is not accessible. Access is denied." and when i hover over the folder it says its empty. also i cannot delete the folder is says Access is denied. I have other folders that i can access on the drive that i copied over long before i had to reformat that work fine so i know the drive itself is still working.
please help! i need those files
