I'm just exploring some options, I hope you don't mind...
  • Was this a recent folder that disappeared or perhaps a temporary folder created on the drive?
  • What data was in the folder?
  • Perhaps the folder was set to Hidden?

You might want to give this a go: Recuva (Free recover software app from Piriform)

It sounds like you can access other folders on the drive, correct?


[Edit]- I forgot to ask, was this a folder that you moved from your internal drive to the external drive?

Well, glad it was the file being hidden...(annoying for you, but at least you found it) :)

Where are you seeing the "archive" option?
