I have a hard drive that I only use for storage (files, docs, music, & whatever). Today when I accessed it there was only one folder there. According to properties there is about 90 - 100 gigs being used on this drive. This one folder is not using that much space. So, could anyone tell me what happen to all my files and how I can get them back. Thanks in advance for any help.

I have used Recuva in the past to recover deleted files from flash drives and hard drives. It's a nice freebie utility you can download here

OK, thanks I will have to try that when I get back home. Although I don't think they were actually deleted. The drive properties are showing like the files are still there as for as free space available, but they're not showing up.

I would take a look in Disk Management...to see how the drive is reflected there.

Files don't disappear, but file systems and hard drives do go bad.

Thanks I'll look at that.
