hi,

when i began 2 open my folder in my documents i accidently draged the folder a bit and it looked like it went in to the folder next to it, i opened it up and i found the folder there but only half of the contents was in it.

i tried 2 restore the folder by using system restore i clicked on the option 'restore my computer to an earlier time' pressed next then went to pick the check point i want, except there were no check points!!...i went 2 systems restore settings to double check if systems restore was turned on or not and it was and even the disk space usage was on max.

i have no clue what to do i mean files cant just disappear, right??

:tazz:

plz help thank you

I'm not familiar with restore, but here are a couple of things to try, if you know any of the filenames.

1. Look in the recycle bin.

2. Search your drives for one of the missing files. If you are lucky you will find the other files in the same directory.

good luck

Sorry you can't see the files. I'm not sure what else to try.

suggestion - back up any files you do not want to lose, in case there is a virus causing this to happen. Back up to CD or Zip - somewhere not on the PC.

another idea - scan the hard drive for bad segments
