Freeagent Go > Missing Files?

Hello,

I've been using a couple Freeagent Go, 500gb drives to back up various files.

Recently, one developed the following problem out of nowhere: Missing files and folders. They're just.. gone, but not.

When I explore the drive, they are missing. However, when I look at the disk space, it says 296gb of 500gb are being used.

Yet, only 36gb worth of files/folders actually show up.

Does anyone have a clue on how to make the files "reappear"

Nothing is hidden and I didn't use any tools to hide or encrypt etc.

Also, I've run all the defrag/analyze tools that windows offers, no luck.

Also, I've run a Malwarebytes scan of the drive. Nothing popped up there either.

I'm going to right click>copy the drive (rather than just folders that are visible) and paste it to a larger 2tb drive and hope for the best.

36gb forth of files show up, but when I look at drive properties, it's showing 296gb worth of space used.. far more than 36gb..
