QuoteHas it got hidden files?

QuoteOK, the external HDD is already formatted as FAT32, so SHOULD be read and writeable by both Windows and Linux.
QuoteIf Windows can't read it .. next time it's plugged into a Windows machine, run chkdsk on it to check/fix the file system.
QuoteRunning a file system check from windows "shouldn't" delete any files .. but just in case it's always a good idea to bacjup what you can't afford to loose anyway.
QuoteSo far Windows has been reading a USB stick it really shouldn't .. and not reading a HDD it really should, considering it's using a Windows file system.
QuoteIn reality .. the best thing you could do is copy everything off that drive .. then format it as NTFS rather than FAT32 .. then copy everything back
