My files are gone in my external harddrive; It was working before and I have NTFS-3G.
Alright, as pointed out;
I have a WD Elements Harddrive, and earlier today I had some errors with my bootcamp. It seems that an update was aborted and I had my macbook in a black screen every single time I open windows. However, through safemode, I managed to fix this problem. The thing that came with that was, my HD (which I also use when I'm on my windows) seems to have changed it's format by itself, since I can't see any of my files I have on when I'm on my mac os. I was thinking that, once I fixed my windows problem it would fix the one I have with my mac os too, but it didn't. It worked before and I had NTFS-3G installed and everything. I'm not sure what happened now. It also doesn't appear on the sidebar of the finder under devices.
Can anyone help me resolve this? I don't really feel like reformatting my HD because I don't have any other computer to put my files with, and I have about 800GB+ files here and my laptop can only contain around 320GB.
EDIT: It may also be important to note that I can see the files on my windows, and that when I 'get the info' from my HD, the file says it's formatted as NTFS. (Screenshot: http://puu.sh/1Zm2A)

From windows run the chkdsk utility and target your external harddrive. See if that fixes your problem. More info on the chkdsk utility and how to use it here : http://www.howtogeek.com/wiki/Chkdsk. Or Google chkdsk. You might also want to check your Console application for errors about NTFS-3G trying to mount your external disk.
