To start at the beginning, I am a truck driver, so my laptop and external are running off a inverter...
I started up the truck (which low powers the inverter and turns it off). I came back to find a 40gig folder on my external now missing...kinda
I doesn't show up in nautilus but it does under the terminal. Black background with red letter..
Thinking something was writing to that folder when I started truck, as I HAD my downloads set to auto copy when complete.
I am somewhat of a linux newbie as I have only been running 7.10 since November. So I have noticed that different files have different colors...but I don't know what the default meanings of them are...I assume since I can't read that directory that black with red letters is bad..
This is what it displays from terminal (and azureus for that matter).
Saw in another thread that fsck doesn't support NTFS. Which is fine cause I don't really know how to use it.
james@Satellite:/media/500gig$ cd Torrents
bash: cd: Torrents: Input/output error
Is there anyway I can fix this? Or am I better off waiting until I am home and have access to a XP machine to run chkdsk or scandisk?
If you need me to post any more info just ask.
