Hi

I have a Western Digital 1TB hard drive which is formatted to work with my iMac and Windows laptop. Which worked perfectly. I recently bought a refurbished Macbook pro and plugged the hard drive into it and now some of the files and folders are showing up as unix executable files with zero KB. Also when I plugged the hard drive back into my Windows laptop, some files and folders are longer working. They have a white file icon instead of a folder one and they say 0KB.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

"Capture.PNG" kind of looks like folders to me. I'd run diskutility and scan and repair issues, as well as permissions.
