  1. just a thought......did you try going to folder options and then to view and select show hidden files and folders and then check the drive again......

    hello i've had that problem before, i have a Seagate 500GB and i've experienced that already.
    It's a virus, but i have a friend that is a nerd at computers and he knows what to do. if you're interested you can email me at carl_john27@yahoo.com but if you're far away from my location... i'll just try to ask my friend how to do it and i'll try to share it to ya.
