Cannot see folders on Back-up Drive

I backed some video files on a western digital green drive. I access the drive via a hard drive cradle. I just sent in to access the drive and I am getting an error message sat there were some issues with some of the files. I chose the fix option and then the file window closes.

The folders are not visible but I can see that there is 1.0 TB of data on the drive.

What can I do to regain line of site to the data on the drive?

The files I am looking for are now in hidden system files called Found.000 and Found.001. I found this by doing a virus scan of the drive. I cannot open these files even when made visible. How do I access these files and copy back to my main folder?

Found files are result of a disk check its found errors on the disk and files destroyed so it creates found files which is left of the file. Most will be unreadable the problem being you don't know what the file type is to view them. What did the report say from the disk check did it say errors on the drive it should be in event log
