Hello,
My 1TB Western Digital External Hard Drive all of a sudden only shows 1 KB shortcuts to all of my file folders that were on it. I tried connecting it to a different computer and I get the same results. It shows that about half the memory is taken and all my folders still show up (but only as 1 KB short cuts). I cannot access any of the folders. It seems that the data is there but I cannot read it. What can I do to try and fix this problem?

Oops. Could be Windows 7. Are you sure you've actually saved your files to the external drive? Check your system drive as the shortcuts may be on your external drive but your fiels on the sytsem drive.

If half the memory or disk space is taken, check the folders that aren't shortcuts or do a search.
