I havn`t used W7 yet so I am not familiar with its layout but have you tried doing a disk clean-up?
Go to my computer>right click on the drive>click on disk clean-up>go through the checked items to make sure it does not delete anything you wish to keep>click on more options and then the clean-up button in the system restore box and then click ok.
If this works you may be able to delete enough unwanted items to be able to access the HDD normally, if not try
using Recuva to get back data you wish to keep http://download.cnet...4-10753287.html
Good luck and let us know how it goes

Use the command prompt to perform a scan on your "J" drive. Enter the following information into the command prompt window without the quotes:
"chkdsk J: /f"
Than press enter, and it should fix the corrupt MFT, or other inconsistencies. If that doesn't help try running command prompt again yet this time writing the following:
"chkdsk J: /f /r" [Note: This will perform a full scan (including bad sectors) and attempt to fix them.]
If none of that works you must have lost power to your hard drive during a power outage, fluctuation, or the like. Which may have caused a chip in the external enclosure to lose information which has deemed the external enclosure unusable. In which case I would take the hdd out of the enclosure and insert it into my pc, or another enclosure to see if it still works. I highly doubt that the drive would stop working simply because there is no more space on the hdd. I've never experienced the latter...
