    Missing desktop FOLDER with many sub folders and other documents

    I have lost a folder off my desktop which contains vital information. I have checked my deleted items folder and it is not there. I have done a system search and it does not pop up, although two sub folders pop up, but they are both empty. What on earth has happened!!?

    Please can anybody help - I am frantic to recover the information.

    Do you know the name of the folder? If so install Everything Search. Let it run after install then type the name of the folder in the input area at the top. If it's anywhere. Everything will find it.

    I just save the ISOs. I can always create a USB flash drive to install from if I ever need it.
