My external hard drive (WS Passport) has crashed lately. All folders turned into white unknown objects, each 0KB.
I ran chdsk and got all the files restored. I was able to access the found.000 folder on my father's pc, but not on mine.
After several futile attempts to access it from my laptop, I decided to delete it and run chdsk again. I did so. Now, the chdsk refuses to do the trick one more time. No found.000 folder is now created upon completion of the recovery procedure!
My question is: how come? Is there an explanation as to why chdsk does not create a found.000 folder anymore? Is there any way to force chdsk to create it?
According to the disk manager, the data (around 1,5 TB) is seemingly still there. I'd love to recover at least some of it.
Thank you for your suggestions!
