  1. hey,

    yesterday I tryed to open a folder on my external hdd I received the error message that the folder couldn't be accessed becouse it was corrupted.
    I am arfraid this might have have happend when I unplugged my hdd without using save remove, but I'm not sure this is what caused it.

    Does anyone know howe i might recover the files in the folder. because it was al large (about 300 GB) and important folder.
    I use windows XP, and it is a NTFS drive.

    thanks

    Try running CHKDISK (check disk) on the external drive
