Buffalo external hard drive and Vista Hibernation

Hi,

I usually have my buffalo external hdd connected to my dell studio 15. I tried shutting down once but accidentally put it into hibernation. So after it hibernated I switched it back on, the hdd would spin up a couple of times, but as it got to the desktop it would spin down. I try to access the hdd and I can see the folders etc, when I try entering a folder such as "music" for example, the hdd would spin up, but then a message would say the folder music is unavailable. So I refresh the window, and the music folder disappears! just like that, now after the spin up, i can access the rest of the folders, but the "music" is just gone forever.

Does anyone know what's going on or how I can get that folder back. It was actually the "documents" folder in my case, but music was an example.

Thanks

hi again,

Problem has been fixed and the files are still there! Basically used vista scan disk to fix errors option and it recovered my files. Phew....thought I'd lost it all.
