TestDisk sees files but won’t copy

I have an external USB HDD that turned RAW after a Windows 10 update.
I have run TestDisk on it, did a QuickSearch and a Deeper search.
I followed the instructions to Write the partition back on the drive. After restarting the computer the drive still shows as RAW.

Now, I try to copy the files to a separate HDD. TestDisk let’s me select the files, and I find the destination okay, it tells me it is copying the files. When I look in Windows File explorer, the destination disk appears empty. But when I look at the destination disk with TestDisk, it shows me the files that were copied.

What am I missing?

Maybe it's a problem of hidden files: ... dden-files
