I've got a folder on an external hard disk which I connect to my PC using USB2. This folder contains all kinds of stuff about 20gb worth. My data has gone missing for no apparent reason. Today I open up the folder and it's EMPTY. Check the properties and it says 0 bytes. What happened? I do run auto defrag utility on my computer. Is there ANY WAY I can recover this data? If not, I just want to know what could have happened so I can prevent this from happening again. My PC runs Windows XP Pro. Thanks in advance.
