Couple days ago, while I was transferring music from my computer to my external hard drive, my computer froze and I had to reboot the computer. When I went back to the external hard drive, I no longer saw my music folder, but instead found a 128kb file (type: file). I managed to recover all the missing files due to my friends help.

Now... Here's my problem. I found a folder called FOUND.000 and in here are all my music files (about 30gb). They are named FILEXXX.chk and I know I have to change the file property to .mp3 in order to access them. I have over 8,000 files.

My question is...
1. Is there a way to restore all these files to their original form, location, and title?
2. If not, then is there a way for me to save a lot of time besides clicking on each and every single one of them, listening to them, and renaming them?
3. Is there a way for me to restore my external hard drive to the way it was couple days ago?

Thank you.

Personally...I've never had any luck restoring such files, but that's probably a reflection on me :).
