and tell us if it freezes or not when you try and get the listing.

as for the check disk right click the drive in my computer > properties > tools tab > error checking > check now > check both boxes > then start
When I did that with the cmd prompt it gave me this error

data error <cyclic redundancy check>.

I am trying the disk check now , its having me restart pc before it does it so gonna do that now..


Thanks again for the help guys I hope I can get these files back

Well ran the diskcheck...took about an hour...

Windows loaded back up and the directory was deleted..

The drive holds 189gb there is 87.9gb actually used then there is 35.4gb free...

There is 65.7gb missing.....how can that be?

The entire folder I was trying to access was deleted by doing that disk check...guess it doesnt matter now...

Well thanks for trying to help...just wish I still atleast had hope of having that folder....

You sure it will recover files that were erased during a diskclean?
