    I assume I scheduled checkdisk on one of my external drives (L:) Now I cant access any of the data stored on the drive. All I can see is a bootex file with the following information:

    Checking file system on L:
    The type of the file system is FAT32.

    A disk check has been scheduled.
    Windows will now check the disk.
    Volume Serial Number is 0000-0F16
    Convert lost chains to files (Y/N)? Yes
    134298304 KB in 1922 recovered files.
    Windows is verifying free space...
    Free space verification is complete.
    Windows has made corrections to the file system.
    195310688 KB total disk space.
    96 KB in 3 hidden files.
    64 KB in 1 folders.
    134298304 KB in 1922 files.
    61012192 KB are available.

    32768 bytes in each allocation unit.
    6103459 total allocation units on disk.
    1906631 allocation units available on disk.

    When I hover over drive L: that listed on "my computer" it says I have 58.1 GB free space and total size is 186 GB. How can I retrieve the information stored on this drive?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
