What to Do When NVMe SSD Shows Empty But It's Not

I have cloned all the applications and files from the HDD on my old computer to this new NVMe SSD. After I installed the SSD on the new PC, I could see nothing in it. There are no files, no programs, nothing. The NVMe SSD shows empty, but it's not. Why is this happening, and how am I supposed to fix this? Appreciate any help!

Many factors could cause your NVMe SSD to show empty on your computer even though it's not, such as the files being hidden, the SSD being corrupted, file system errors, viruses or malware attacks, etc. They can all prevent the data on your NVMe SSD from being displayed.

To fix the issue, you can try reconnecting the SSD and running anti-virus software first. If they don't solve the problem, resort to a practical third-party tool, EaseUS Partition Master Free.
