fat32 visable with no files

#1 Post by maansingh169 »

I have a 500gb external Western Digital harddrive that was formatted in FAT32

I can view the harddrive in my computer. The properties for the drive says that 198gb is being used.

When i open up the drive, there are no files or folders present.

I ran chkdsk and it found some errors that it repaired. but I am still having the same issue.

How do I fix this issue so I can view my files?
