I am fairly new to Mac so what I am about to ask might be a stupid question. I apologise in advance.

When I was to use my external hard drive for a weekly backup earlier this evening, the main folder in which I store the data had turned into a Unix Executable File for some reason that I do not know.

The format of the external hard drive is "Windows NT Filesystem" and I am using an application called "Paragon NTFS" which made me able to "read and write" on the hard drive.

Is there a way to turn this back into a normal folder without losing the content within?

If more information is needed, please do not hesitate to ask!

Thank you in advance,

- Faarkrog
