Why are folder names messed up on my external hard drive and how can I access them again?

My Seagate free agent 1TB drive, when accessed today it shows all wild characters (like boxes, forward, upward symbols, dollars and others) instead of folder names. And when clicked, it doesn’t open, instead it says “The file name, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect.” It was working fine till last few days.
