Folder Problem

Some folders on an old Maxtor hard drive appear to be empty but I'm sure there are files in the folder.
When accessing the folder via Windows Explorer I don't see an empty right hand pane but instead I see a popup indicating that "the files are inaccessible.Incorrect function."

Can anyone explain what's happening here and if the problem can be fixed.

Have you tried right clicking on the folder to bring up properties, that will tell you if there are files within the folder.

The problem is solved - the disk has died completely.
