Disappearing Folder
« on: December 31, 2014, 03:51:27 AM »
I have a major problem here. I have a folder where I keep all my data on this computer. But it suddenly disappeared into thin air. I didn't do anything, it's just gone. I tried searching it, changing the hidden folder settings, doing a threat scan, doing a recovery scan, but nothing works. Earlier today i did compress a few files on the other section of the hardrive I use, but that shouldn't have effected anything else. I'm really scared that I lost everything, can someone please help?

Do you have a restore point on your computer? It might be worth a try. Otherwise, I'm really not sure. Sorry if that doesn't help.

Hmm, the only thing I can really think of right now is to go back to the folder options and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files" and see if the contents of the folder come up :unsure: Otherwise, I'm not really sure. You could check your recycle bin to see if anything happened to end up there, but I'd really doubt that'd be the case :/

I'm sure you already did, but yeah, check your recyle bin.
Have you tried Recuva? It doesn't always work but it may be worth a shot, it's saved my butt a few times before.
I hope you fix it, I would be flipping out..

yeah i've tried all these things, but nothing works. though i have a bit more information now. so my computer told me to compress some files since it was low on disk space and needed more to run smoothly. so i clicked ok, and it said "compressing old files" after that it said "would you like to remove unwanted programs?" i said yeah, and uninstalled a program that was located in my folder. that's when it disappeared. i think it might have gotten compressed. but i searched for it, and it didn't come up. i don't know where compressed files are sent to either. I've been trying to figure out the command for restoring compressed files, but i haven't been successful. plus i don't even know if the file was compressed. it could have just disappeared cause my computer's angry, who knows.

I think your computer saw those files you had as old and unnecessary and deleted them.
