Hello. First I want to admit that I am a dumb ass. But here goes:
My external hard drive has seemed to be acting crazy the last couple days. When I open it, my folders slowly begin to show up (or not at all). If a folder DOES show up, when I open it, nothing is there anymore. I checked properties and it still shows that my files should be there somewhere...but who knows where?! I have tried it both on my Dell PC and my MacBook Pro without any success.
I went to do a CHKDSK on it but it tells me this cannot be performed.
Basically, I have everything on here and have not yet backed up onto my other external. For the most part...I don't want to lose photos that I have amassed over the years. The 1,000+ iTunes albums are a punch to the stomach, but the loss of my photos would be heartbreaking.
Is there any way I can run a scan or at least locate these files without having to take it to a complete stranger that will charge me up the wazoo? A friend of mine said it could be something with the mapping and it's just not able to locate what goes where.
The external is a FreeAgent External, 500 GB from Seagate. Model Number: st305004fda1e1-rk |
