    External hard drive help - missing folder

    On my external hard drive i have various folders, music, films etc, the film one now is just a blank folder and when i click it it i get the message that it refers to a location that is unavailabe.

    I know i haven't moved the films or folder, is there any way to get then back?

    Plug the drive into a Vista laptop or PC and it will ask i you want to fix the drives errors.

    No sure how to do it on XP. Sure someone can help though.

    Good luck.

    it's plugged into a vista laptop

    try searching *.avi or *mp3 if no results come up its probably gone , also try a recovery program , if its been accidently deleted it should so up there. Another thing you could try is unchecking "hide folders" and "hide system folders.." you might have some luck there
