Please I need your help in the most weird thing ever happened with me.
I have 2TB external hard drive where I saved all my documents, videos, photos, files and just everything important to me in it.
Recently I've been try to download Media Creation Tool to windows 10 to restore my computer to the factory setting which I didn't require more than 30GB in worst case, however since I have enough space on my (2TB external hard drive) which I used only 37GB of it so i decided to save this download Media Creation Tool folders in my external hard drive.
And when I started to download the software the download window didn't ask me to format the hard drive or anything else. it's just start to download normally (at the same time I was checking my external hard drive to see where the files will be in it).
Later, when the download finished I discovered that my external hard drive (name and size) has been changed to be ESD-USB (F:) and the size has been shrink from 2TB to 28.5GB free of 31.9GB and when I clicked to open it again surprisingly I couldn't find anything of my original saved files (Doc,photos,videos..etc) except the Media Creation Tool folders..!!
What does that mean please?
Does that mean I lost all my saved files and documents..etc and the new Media Creation Tool replace it?
Even if we assume that, where the rest size of 2tb has been gone?
The 37GB of my original saved files can't be disappear in blink of an eye like that if we assumed the (Media Creation Tool) formatted my external hard drive.!
So please is there're anyone can help me here on how to find my missing files or how to recover it?
I don't mind deleting all the Media Creation Tool because I can re-download it again, but the most important thing now how to get back all my very valuable files..!!
Also when I do right-click on the external hard drive there is options listed, one of them (restore previous versions) but there is no action I can take when I enter on this option.
Please take look to the picture below it may help to explain enough my issue.
Thanks you in advance
