I assumed that Windows would still have access to the folder, but alas, no. All my desktop icons dissapeared, and windows kept saying the "file could not be found message.
I logged off, and logged onto another user, and tried to find the folder in "C:\Documents and settings\". It was not there, so to test i tried to create a folder called my original user name. It said "file/folder already exists".
I knew it did, but it wasn't there. i enabled viewing hidden and system files, but they still wouldn't show.
How can i recover my files? I need them next week!
