I started copying files from my Mac OS X Version 10.7.5 to my NASware 3.0TB that I'm currently using as an external hard-drive with an ICY BOX as docking station. When the last of the files were transferring the process froze and wouldn't finish. The bar kept on working saying that there were 5s left but nothing happened for more than ten minutes so I clicked "stop transferring" and now it's been about half an hour that it's saying "Stopping...". I tried to eject the harddrive but of course it won't eject while still in use. Now when I try to look in the folders that are already existing in the harddrive the folders appear empty. I'm a photographer so it's only filled with JPEG and CR2 files but they don't appear. Now I am scared to touch anything in fear of loosing all my work. What do I do??

Thank you in advance

For now, leave it it see what happens in an hour or so. If it continues to do this you may be looking at restarting your machine and seeing what has been done. Just keep everything plugged in. Usually if you cancel it just goes back as fi you had never transfered anything but can leave folders on the destination drive. It shouldn't have deleted anything. Unfortunate it's hard to say for certain what has happend and what to do.
