    Alright so I got a WD Elements 2TB harddrive that had around 300gb worth of data on it. Plugged it on to my Xbox to watch a few movies of it. After that I tried to plug it back in to my computer (with windows 8 as my OS) and it finds it but only as "Local Disk :)F)". It had a name earlier which was Elements or something like that. Now I can't find any of the old data on it and it shows up as 1.78TB out of 1.81TB free which is nowhere near the amount of data I had earlier. The only data I can find on the harddrive is only Xbox 360 files. Could something have happen since I played some of my games with the harddrive still plugged in?

    My question being, what has happen and is there anyway that I can get the data back?
