I'm currently using a Western Digital external hard drive which is 1TB. I have been running it for some weeks now and it has been fine up until now. When I plug the drive in at the moment it is recognized by windows, but not like it was before; it has also lost the WD logo. Most importantly windows recognizes a certain amount of space is being used on the drive. However when the drive is opened no folders or files can be seen and cannot be accessed by the computer. Help please.

try data recovery software... I have had luck with Getdataback by runtime systems.... just be sure to read and get the one that will work for your situation. There are others ( I believe pcinspector might even be free ) but I have not used any of them...
