Default 2.5 gb folder only showing few files

I did a backup using LaCie's software.
The backup folder properties say it is 2.5 gigs big. But the only sub-folder showing is 500 mbs.
Somewhere where I can't see it is 2 gigs of key data.

The LaCie software doesn't seem to have a restore function. The folder is not hidden. I've tried different views. When I copy to another location it shows that it is moving all the files that I can't see.

How can I get to the unseen data?

What's your OS?

In folder option, uncheck "Protect System File" I think that's what its call. It should be right under "Show Hidden Files". Give that a try.
