I have Mojave installed on Mac and an external NTFS formatted hard drive.
a) tried to get writing permission via the terminal
sudo nano /etc/fstab LABEL=NAME none ntfs rw,auto,nobrowse
b) installed mounty and ran it with the same intention
Now folders with big amounts of subfolders and data are suddenly "empty". Some other folders seem fine. I have not done any changes to any of the folders, nor deleted data. File recovery software doesn't show these folders nor the data in them.
I am a bit stressed out, because they contain big amounts of my work and I urgently need the data on Monday.
Thanks for any hint on how to solve the issue.
