    I was looking through a file my OWC Mercury Elite Pro 2.5" external HDD that contains all of my music and I noticed that some folders had been deleted, some folders had been added and some files had been moved around or renamed. I did none of this and I don't know how this happened. Could this be a symptom of a bigger problem or did something simple go wrong.

    I'm running Yosemite 10.10.5 on an early 2011 MacBook Pro.

    Thanks everyone.

    This seems strange! Does anyone in your household have access to it?

    Yes, people had access to it and I was figured that may have been the issue but I am just trying to make sure this isn't a potential hdd failure warning sign.
