Hi there,

Got a problem with my Buffalo external hard drive. After I took it to my friend's house, Windows XP was no longer recognising it. I managed to solve this using EXT2FSD but now the drive is claiming it has 50Gb of space, where previously there's was only 1Gb. It's also not allowing transfers of large files. Small files like JPEGs go over fine though and what's already on there works fine. It is formatted as a EXT3 drive so I've been unable to diagnose it. There's no damage to the hardware itself, and nothing is loose inside. Has the drive been damaged somehow and is it possible to fix without having to wipe it? Thanks.
