I have 1 TB HDD . It was working well both in Ubuntu and windows , But three days go I can see my data and folders in Ubuntu only . But when I insert this HDD on other system having windows it is detected but not showing any folder . But when I check properties it shows me exactly how much disk space is available . I don't have space to backup my data and format drive my HDD is almost full

Here are my HDD details :

Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes

I tired these steps on windows and it works for me

Click on "Start" --> In search bar, type cmd. Right-click on the command prompt

that appears in the search and select "Run as administrator".

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

(If you are using Windows XP then open the command prompt directly)

Here I assume your external hard disk drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* 

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your external hard disk drive letter.

Now check for your files in external hard disk.
