How can I recover files/folders missing from my desktop? I tried doing a partial system restore back to dates prior to the loss of files and could not retreive them.

Basic - and a very long shot - but... Perhaps have a look in the recycle-bin?

There are file recovery utilities that may help.

Easus make one, and there's also Recuva

How did they go missing?

Any chance that they just got moved, if so do a search for one you remember the name of. It is likely they will have all ended up in the same place.

System restore doesn't recover personal files, only system files, as you've found out.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
