HardDisk & MP4

Hello,
a week ago i transferred a list of archived files to my mp4, then the light went off ,when it came back, i can't find the archives on the partition , nor the mp4

also some sound files disappered from the mp4, also files are occupying space whether on the hard disk or the mp4

i tried to show hidden files, but i still can't find the files

so what's wrong ?? , how can i get the files again ??? because the computer shows that they are still occupying space

thanks in advance

Best regards,

Hi.

Does that mean you lost power to your computer or drive?

If you lost power whilst transferring, there is a good chance some of the files will have become corrupt.

yes the power went off so computer shut down, but the files still occupying space, isn't there anyway to retrieve them ?

Possibly, you'll have to search google though for free software.

Sure, try Recuva for starters.
