Hello, I'm missing 4 gigs off my second hard drive (Seagate 200gb) when i copied my files/folders to a different folder. It started off with me copying some files/folders off my dvdr onto my hard drive then i just simply cut the files and pasted it in a different folder. However, after the files were copied I am not able to open any of the files and the folder with some of the other files I put in, just disappeared and it says the folder is empty and I am missing the disk space. Some of the other files that i had copied into the folder is not working either, but i was able to delete them. The other folders that i copied into another folder won't let me delete it. There is a message that simply says "Access is Denied" and there are no files inside them. But I am still missing the disk space (about 4 gigs).
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

Nope, just says the same message, "Access is denied".

Tread lightly here, lest you delete a shortcut to a folder by deleting another folder.

I'm pretty sure i didn't delete any other shortcut or a folder. The folder with my supposed copied files is gone, the folders are empty and i'm still missing 4 gigs that i copied over.
