    Files and Folders randomly dissappeard


    Hello!

    I am looking for some help regarding a problem I just ran into.

    Earlier today I had filmed a video and was editing it. I saved all the files to my D: drive (1TB hardrive)

    I had been saving them in a folder that was a few folders deep into my D: drive.

    This is what it looked like

    D: New Volume - MurrayBros- Sketches - Video Games Suck - Firewatch sucks

    I was saving them in the last one (Firewatch Sucks).

    When I had finished saving everything, I went to go look at my new video and the folder was gone.

    This is what it currently looks like now

    D: New Volume - MurrayBros - Sketches - new folder

    all those files are gone, and the folder Firewatch sucks is gone, and the folder which I had named Video Games Suck is now titled new folder.

    Can anyone help?

    And the search function doesnt find it? Im not sure if the D drive is indexed by default mine wasnt maybe goto control panel , indexing options then modify and select D . What about enableing "hidden files and folders" incase its been hidden? If its a big file WinDirStat provides a graphical representation of your hard drive maybe route it out that way. Try piriform's Recuva (free program for finding deleted files)
