I am writing this for my little sister who needs a bit of help with her external hard drive.
The other day she took out dad's external disk from her old computer and put in her own external to copy over some images, but on her external she could not see her own folders but the folders from my dads external that was disconnected.
She took her external to her new computer and tried to plug the external into that one and the folders from my dads external would still show up on hers and with strange letters and numbers as folder names.
Is there anything that can be done for the external or does it need replacing?
Sorry I can't provide more info as she lives on the other side of the world.
The old computer runs XP and her new one runs Windows 7.
When she plus the external into the new laptop a message appears as if she wants to repair the disk, it does not solve anything.
