    I have a older WD My Book drive for all of my music. I got a 2nd drive to back up all of my files. Copied folder over to new drive. All folders show up but folders are empty. When I go back to my old WD drive it shows 192GB being used but the music folder is empty when I open the folder.

    How can I get my music back?

    What operating system are you running?

    On your old drive, is this just for backup on are you running an operating system off this drive?

    You say 192GB is used on the old drive. When you right click on the music folder on the old drive, select Properties, how much data does it show as being used?
