hi all, i am new here and would greatly appreciate advice you can offer.
i am using xp pro with sp2
i have my pictures stored an a hard drive.
there are about 100 folders. within this "photo folder".
i do not regulkarly look throuigh it.
i noticed about three weeks ago that all the files and folder names which start with the letter A-F are present. but any with values greater than F are not.
the other folders are there? as i cannot rename a new folder to a name i already know exists even though i cant see it (tried safe mode no help).
i have just sorted the date numeric named folders eg 21-12-05 into year folders eg 2004 2005 2006 etc.
and then letter fles or folders starting with A-C are visible.
now nothing is visible after a refresh and any files i create
disappear after closing window and then repooening " but they are just hidden i just cant get them out.
all i want to do is get back my files and stick them on another drive and then ??? bin this hard drive.
2. hardware failure.
3. you tell me
Can i fix it? No
Can u fix it.. i hope so.
thanks i'm despairing
