Have you re-formatted the drive? - the drive inside our network space is formatted very differently than your average windows drive - part of the file system is XFS which windows does not know how to deal with. Find info in this forum on how to format drives and about file systems. Oh! and do not forget that formatting a drive means you loose your files!
