Had kind of an odd thing happen and I'm hoping someone can explain it to me.

A couple of weeks back, I had a drive fail on my old EX475. I tried to get it to work, but had no luck. I lost my backups and a few folders of data (nothing critical that was duplicated)....but data I'd rather have than not. LOL.

Tonight, I was able to get the drive that failed to spin up in an external enclosure. What I am confused about is that the folders that were missing are not on the drive. I connected up the other drives too, looked in the data folder....but no. Any idea what happened, and any chance of getting that data back? I had been thinking if I could get the drive to spin up I'd be able to recover those files....

When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true. Unless it's really a meteor hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life as we know it. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

First they will be in subfolders.
Second you need to enable view hidden files/folders in windows explorer when you connect the drive to a pc.
Third, depending on what duplication you have the files may be on another drive.
The data will only be view-able for shared folders not backups.
