I logged on to the computer today went to my g side that is my slave drive and im missing about 6o gigs of movies and music , they were completely gone folders and all . I did a system restore to earlier time and the some of the missing folders reappeared but showed they were empty . So I proceeded to restore even earlier now I have all my folders back but they are still empty . Now if I right click on the g side and hit properties it shows a whole bunch of free space but when I click on the g side and go to the folders that were missing I right click on theme and they show folders are full it shows the 60 gig that i am missing but if you go into the folder all the sub folders are there but they are all empty . Now I know everything has got to be there because there is a media player I installed on the g side and is in one of those sub folders that I use as default player when I click a music or video file it plays on that player right now . my folders are not on hidden and even if they were I have show all hidden selected in my folder options . Please help windows xp home , service pack 3 , pentium 4 , 2.02 ghz , .99 gb ram

Try running the error-checker on drive G:

1. In 'My Computer' window, right-click 'G' drive and choose 'Properties'

2. Click the 'Tools' tab

3. Click "Check Now" in the error-checking section, and tick both option boxes.

4. Click 'Start'

I ran check disk and it showed nothing was wrong with the drive
