I have both a Mac and Windows machine with a portable hard drive (NTFS) to store all my files. I had a folder on my Mac that has an invalid name for Windows, it contained a ":". In a shuffle of upgrading my Mac I had deleted all the files off of my old one and in between deleting those files and transferring over to the new Mac I had plugged the hard drive into the Windows machine and, not thinking, hit the repair button when it said that the drive had errors.
Now I can not see the folder on the Mac (OSX 10.8) at all and on the Windows (Win 7) machine it shows up but I can not access it. I have tried to upload the folder from the portable hard drive to Google Drive but Drive didn't respond at all to the upload.
I also tried to rename the folder and as I suspected that did not work.
Is there a way to recover this folder back to the Mac?
