I was preparing to transfer a huge folder of files from the WD My Passport Ultra external drive to my PC when the entire folder just…. disappeared while I was tabbed to the folder on my PC I was going to transfer it to. I tabbed back to an error (something about being inaccessible, I can't remember) and the folder was just gone. I have hidden folders/files displayed and it's not there. I definitely could not have deleted it because the folder was 300gb and something that large tends to take forever to get removed. The space on the drive is still being shown as occupied but the things aren't there.
Does anyone have a guess as to how that randomly happened? What can I do to get my files back?!
