Question: Files disappear from external hard drive
I just bought an external hard drive for my mac, WD Elements 1 TB and I formatted it a Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with a GUID Partition Map scheme and after about on hour of moving stuff around and trying to free up space on my Mac, all of the files on my external hard drive disappeared. I can still see that about 50 gig are used up but when I open the external hard drive the drive appears blank. What can or should I do to fix this? If I have to reformat the drive, should I choose a different format or scheme? If there any hope for saving the content?
MacBook Air, macOS High Sierra (10.13.3)
