Question Disappearing TIFF files!

Some recently saved TIFF files on a MyBook external drive have mysteriously disappeared, but not without a trace. The thumbnails and file names are still there, but all viewers on both my computers say "file is empty". The settings in properties seem OK.

Suggestions?

What happens if you copy the file to the internal HDD on your computer?

The file name moves, but not the thumbnail. Still "0 bytes" "file is empty".

I thought these had something in common, but there are more empty than I thought from different sources in different folders. All are recent, though.
I'll replace them, back up everything and see what happens.
