Recover ExFat External Drive Missing Files on macOS

I bought a Western Digital External Drive and connected it to my MacBook Pro. I formatted the drive in exFat mode. Everything goes well on my Windows, but when I connect the dive back to my MacBook, I have lost almost 1TB of files and folders. Is there any possible way to fix this?
