When I rebooted, my external drive G: was recognised and the folders which had not been copied were viewable, but when you clicked on each folder they were empty of files.
When right clicking on the drive G: for properties, the information that 279GB total space, of which 35.74Gb were free in NTFS format.
When I switch on the G: drive now, I get a dialogue box with exclamation mark in yellow triangle with the message:
Windows Delayed Write Failed
Windows was unable to save all the data for file G:\$Mft.
The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.
Has this data all been lost, or have the pointers to the files been corrupted and the files recoverable?Would appreciate any advice on this matter.
My OS is Windows XP SP3
