Solved files and a few shortcuts are suddenly gone

Specs: Windows 7, 4.0 GB ram
Some of my files disappeared from my desktop! I was working on something, and my brother accessed my computer over the network, and suddenly, my files and a few shortcuts were gone from my desktop! I was very alarmed. I restarted, turned off, disabled wi-fi, everything, and it wouldn't reappear. I know it's possible that he deleted those files, but he promised that he didn't. I there any way how I can get them back? They are all really important. I am now using freeware Recuva to try to recover the files. Thank you in advance for your help.

You might also want to try one of these if Recuva doesn't find your lost files: http://free-backup.info/data-recove...

You should keep backups of everything then you wouldn't have that problem!

Thanks a bunch! All my files were succesfully recovered with Recuva. Only, I recovered them all to the same folder, and now I have to sort all the files from junk that I didn't want or need. Only 3958 more files to go... Thanks anyway!
