i copied files (almost 50g data)onto my 250gb external hd as backup.
i checked to make sure it has been properly copied. i then shut down my system after i had taken out the ext hd and went to bed.
so here i am next morning trying to access the copied data on the ext hd, the folders were there alrite. but it reads the file size of the folders as zero, i really dont understand what was going on. i've tried everything i know and i am out of ideas. it doesnt allow me to access the files in the folders on the ext hard drive.
the funny thing is that the partitioned hd (where i copied the files to) reads it's size as 48.3gb, (out of the total size of 60g), as exactly the size of the data i copied on to it. now i need the files urgently or i could get fired cuz i have deleted to original data on my main pc hd.
i need help plz.
