I take it you have no backups, no copies of the files and they don't exist in recycle bin. Sounds like you moved not copied.

Stop using your computer until you get some data recovery software on cd to then run on your pc.

Continued use reduces the ability to recover the files.

Thanks so much for the advice. I had not been using it, except for the internet, for that reason.
This morning I downloaded the GetData program and it, so far, has not recovered most of the stuff. Installing from a CD may be better...we'll see. I'm waiting to hear from their support person.
