    Dish Network External Hard Drive

    Hopper won't recognize my external hard drives

    EHD H3 lost all listings, space used shown correctly went through this myself, replacing the receiver won't fix anything. ext2explore lets you check in windows the folder structure. mine were all moved to lost&found (not the app to fix it, just a quick check)
