    I'm having trouble with an external harddrive I have. I can see every folder and the drive shows up as full. But when I open the folders they're empty. I can't copy files to the disk either nor can I repair permissions on it because it gives me the error that it can't unmount it.
    I just want to get this whole harddrive to another one but carbon copy cloned or super duper wont let me do it.

    It's a WD Passport

    For anybody who is having this problem with WD drives I installed WD+Turbo and now everything works again
