I have a 3tb go flex home that i've used for almost a year with no significant problems. I store my archive of family videos in the public folder and went in today to do some renaming and sorting. After updating 60 or so files, i noticed 'video' folder had replicated and now i had 2 with same name, both under same parent folder. Only one had data and the other was empty. I deleted empty folder multiple times but it kept coming back. After a few minutes of going back and forth, I noticed that unfoldered data was no longer in either but that some subfolders were still present with data in them. I checked folder properties which showed 40gb but nothing I could see. Tried copying folder-no luck-it was like an empty folder. I am certain I didnt delete 100's of files but cant find them. I rebooted drive, laptop, router, modem x 3 with no luck. Tried another sign on-no luck. Tried dashboard folder options-nothing.Next is file recov s/w unless I'm missing something.
Only recent system change was adding an additional macbook to the user list. I've had one mac for a year that accesses drive, but it is primarily managed with my window 7 asus.
Any thoughts, suggestions, consoling words??
Thank you in advance
