    Files Are Invisible on Acer A500

    (sorry if this is the wrong thread, first time)

    I have recently lost my files on my acer a500 tablet. the internal storage holds everything and all of a sudden the files cant be seen or used. i use ES file explorer to view my files and it just says SD card empty unmouted or not present. I know they aren't deleted because in settings/storage it says only 1.2 g free out of 16gb. It maybe from an app i recently installed and deleted called data recovery. (i installed it because i accidently deleted a pdf i wanted)

    i have tried plugging the tablet into a computer but the files still cant be seen there either, and it says only 1.2 gb free. everything i have downloaded since can be seen though.

    I've lost all my photos, music, everything! please help.

    I'm running os 2.6.39.4.

    thank you

    I'm assuming you are looking in the /sdcard/ directory.

    I am curious if the app DiskUsage will show the same usage. Install it and see. What it shows.

    Also, have you tried another file manager like File Manager HD or Astro?

    Thanks frederuco, the DiskUsage program showed the data was still there, and File Manager HD was able to find it and open it. But it still doesn't show up on ES file manager. (weird) So fixed sort of.

    Try uninstalling ES and reinstalling it.
