I’m missing a directory on a external hard drive. I’m sure it was there In my console history there is an history entry to that exact directory. If I check the drive size it tells me there is 470GB in use. All files added together on the drive ads up to 410GB so there is 60GB missing what is about the size of the files in the directory.
When is cd to the dir in the console it tells me it doesn’t exist (issn’t in the ls as well). But when I go to the directory in Dolphin is tells me the same thing but it will try to read the directory (bar on the bottom).
No for what I have done to get is sorted.
Unmounted en mounted the drive again. Didn’t work.
Checked the drive with fsck -vf /dev/sdd1. Drive was clean and no error’s
Smart doesn’t show any error’s on that drive.

What can I do to get my directory back? I didn’t remove it I’m 100% sure and the size is still in use.
The drive is connected with a eSATA cable.
Thanks for you help.
