Files in desktop folder disappeared in XP

October 13, 2012 at 01:03:30
Specs: Windows XP SP3, AMD
All of the files in a subfolder in desktop folder gone. The files I just modified two days ago.
I used search function to search partial name of the files, a file shown in search result windows, and is in previous subfolder. But when I looked into the folder,
there is no any fiile there.
I copied the file from search result windows to another folder, but most of my
files gone.
Later, I didi no do anything, there were two other files appeared in that subfolder,
but still most my files gone.
Why this happened? How do I revover my fiiles? Please Help.

Files can't just disappear. Someone must have taken some action to make that happen.

Did you change the file attributes to hidden by chance?

That said, have you rebooted the computer since this incident? Did you look in the recycle bin?

Try using recuva to recover the files. Get recuva at the link below.

Right now you realize the value of backups.
