It started when I was loading some files onto a friends computer who had Vista. I use XP, the HD was formated NTFS, 200gb. had ~170 gb of stuff. Anyway, the damn thing freezes in the movie folder and we try to force close explorer, but it doesn't work.
anyway, we end up having to power down the HD, and now, whenever I try to access the folders which contained stuff that i had uploaded to his computer, the HD freezes, regardless of the OS. I really don't want to loose that much data. Is there any way to recover what was in those folders before I format the HD?
