Not sure what model your Storejet is so check for a diagnostic tool @ http://storejet.fanh...ersion-

You could also try Seatools as it works on many other brands of HDD http://www.tacktech....tid=287#seagate
Let us know how you get on with the above, exercise caution and for now do not delete anything, FWIW the folders that you cannot open or delete may be that way to protect them from accidental deletion, if you want to open them try this - right click ob the folder - properties and then uncheck the hidden box, leave the following hidden though Recycled, Recycle Bin.bin and System Volume Information.

I am only suggesting the use of the diagnostic tools and in no way suggesting that you use any other product or service at those links.
