When I got my new computer I took this drive out of the old computer and put it into an enclosure. I tried to retrieve the files I had saved on it, but they weren't there. It's like they had never been saved on that drive even though I had saved them on that drive on the desktop and in my documents. I checked those areas and the only files that were there were the ones that had been saved before I had to reinstall the os. It's like the os i had reinstalled had been virtual. I don't know how this happened and found it strange. Has this happened to anyone here before? And someone help me get those files off this drive? I tried to reinstall the drive back into the comp, but for some reason it wouldn't work and I couldn't do anything with it inside the old comp. I just want to get my old videos and an old mp3 off of there. I apologize if I'm not describing this properly. If anyone knows of any questions that they could ask that could help me explain it more clearly please ask.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give. :smile:
