Where did my files go?

The other day while backing up some folders of mine, I happened upon a problem I have not been able to solve. All of a sudden, all of the files in the folder "D:\Movies" disappeared. The weird thing is, at least some of the files are still there.

I have a mighty collection of Pink Floyd's music, which for some reason I keep in my movies folder, and I can still go to the "D:\Movies\Pink Floyd" folder. I can still play the songs in Winamp. I checked to see if they somehow got changed into hidden files, but after changing some settings, I proved myself wrong.

The picture below should help to explain my conundrum.

Quick update:
I tried command prompt, I even went into Safe Mode with command prompt. I also tried deleting any dektop.ini files i could find near the folder that would affect it, but nothing so far has helped.
