computer internal harddrive then copy the informations from the internal Hdd. to external Hdd.2, is that what you did?
Hello and thank you for reading my strange dilemma.
I have two of the same external hard drives that have been in use for a year or so each with different files on them. I only had one connected to my laptop for which I was having files downloaded directly onto. I disconnected that ehd and inserted the other one and again started to download files directly onto it.
Then when I disconnected that ehd and reconnected the first ehd, the ehd did not show any files that had been on it but now shows the exact same files as the 2nd ehd. The thing is when I try to open these files I get the message "file is not accessible - the file is corrupted or unreadable". I am not surprised at the message as the files were never copied from one edh to the other edh. They were never connected to my laptop at the same time because I can only power one ehd at a time re: outlet.
so, how do I get / view the original files that were initially on the first ehd? There was never any deletion of them. Advance Thanks!
