Sea gate external hard drive problem

    Hi I'm wondering if anyone can help me. I recently bought a new laptop and a sea gate external hard drive. I copied all my folders and files over to the hard drive and it all worked fine. However when I try and access them now and click into the laptop folder it loads up the full way alone the top of the screen but never actually shows my files ? Anyone ever have a similar problem ?

    Can you rephrase the question or give more details? It sounds as though you've moved all your files to the external drive and are trying to access it via your laptop folder, not the external drive folder. I assume this isn't the actual problem though.
