I connected my external HD to my Samsung TV and I was able to browse its contents and play movies. Afterwards, i disconnected the drive and the next day at work I noticed that most files, including those I had played were missing.
I don't believe the files are lost, because the space remains occupied, although the files are not visible.
How can I recover the files? Does anyone's been able to recover from this situation?
I did a checkdisk last night.results were that the empty folders had an invalid link. However 600 odd files were recovered. The files were then missing from my drive. I ran through recuva again and found those 600 odd files. Although the extension on them is now a .CHK file with a random name. So i now have to go through all those files. Change the extension til i find the right one, and rename them all =\
Never disconnect while running. Seems to be a common problem among samsung tv's. Buying a new hdd to back them up on. Reformatting old drive then storing on there again. Will be transferring what i would like to watch onto a glash drive in future, rather than running from my drives
