    After copying thousands of photos from my iPhone to my external hard drive (via iMazing)I found that after unplugging and replugging the hard drive again,the only folder I could still see was the “fseventsd-uuid”folder.

    If I try to open the “fseventsd-uuid”folder,it disappears automatically.

    Does anyone know how to solve this and get the photos back?

    For your information:

    • I use a MacBook Pro
    • External hard drive is from Seagate

    Help is is much appreciated!

    Did you use the "eject drive"? If you just unplugged the drive physically, it was properly not done writing data and the the data / file system is now incomplete / corrupt on the drive.

    That would be strange. Cause after copying the files, I could open them without a problem. Just after unplugging and plugging the hard drive back in after a few days this problem occurs.
