Windows 7: Hard Drive "Corrupt" but files still work

Thanks, fixed it... I had to buy new external hard drive then convert the new one and drag the files from old one, one folder at a time... glad they came out with usb 3.0 now with 1.5 tb thanks... also I formatted the entire hard drive (old one) to get it working again...

The thing is that when I first bought it, I forgot to format it, though the pc still reads it even if it's not formatted. I might use this on this new computer only so it doesn't mess up again ...

Portable hard drive shows hidden files (prefixed with ".")
My portable hard drive is showing all the hidden files and folders on it (the ones prefixed with ".", but not the System Information folder, interestingly). I don't have this trouble with any other drives, or elsewhere on my computer, so it seems somehow to be associated with this specific drive. ...
