    Hi all, would need some help on this matter.

    - It's on an external hdd, 1tb Western Digital MyBook hooked via firewire.
    - It's a folder containing music (MP3 + FLAC).
    - All the data in that folder is gone, 0 file, tried on my Macbook and Windows desktop and both came out with the same result.
    - External HDD is NTFS, using Paragon NTFS on my Macbook.
    - The data are still in the hdd, just that it doesn't show any data in the folder, because the space used is still there + the songs still play on my media player library list.

    So main problem here is, how what do I need to do to view the data in that folder now.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Try running the usual disk repair utilities from Windows. NTFS doesn't even have native read/write support on the Mac side, so I wouldn't try doing any maintenance/recovery from there.
