Hello. I hope this is the right forum. I have a Western Digital 1TB USB drive and a few weeks ago it began showing strange symbols instead of the correct file names. i tried some new firmware, plugged and unplugged the drive from the computer many times and eventually it stopped with the symbols. But it began showing a lot of my files as 32k in size. Like half the files on the almost filled up drive show up like this. Even the files which show up at reasonable sizes (they are mostly FLAC music files so let's say a 19.5 MB file) do not work when I try to access them. They look ok but are apparently screwed up. If I try to open the FLAC files, for instance, the software I use starts opening the file but tells me the file ended prematurely midstream or something. I can't use a recovery program I don't think which helps find deleted files because all the files are there. They just don't work. Is there any hope? I called Western Digital (this thing is still under warranty) and they offered me no suggestions but to give up on the files. Is there really nothing I can try? No way to try to get the files back to normal? Thank you for any input.
