It should be a simple problem to fix.  I was trying to download a portable program to an external drive (Seagate Free Agent).  I tried to make a new folder on the fly and XP wouldn't allow it.  I got stuck in some kind of loop trying unsuccessfully to name the folder and then cancel took me back to rename again.  Finally I cancelled the download, but folders on the external harddrive were gone.  The disk still shows 100+ GB used out of 250GB total.  I see recommendations for Recuva and Testdisk as good for file recovery.  But I didn't delete any files and nothing has been written to the disk yet.  Are either of these programs best to restore the folder and file directories?  Or maybe some other fix.
