I don't know how it happened, Nothing out of the ordinary occurred that I can point to, One minute they were here and the next they were gone. The files I mean.

The folders that they were in, are still in their correct places on my desktop, even the sub-folders. But almost every single Picture, Document, or file is MIA, and the strange thing is that other files on my desktop are in tact.

All my notes, and story fragments were on there, not to mention several dozen projects that i was in the middle of. Rebooting didn't help, restoring the system didn't work, I am at the end of my rope. starting over again will be hell. Besides that, there were things that are priceless that I can never get again. I searched the C drive with the Pc inspector file recovery program I read about here, but save for a few pictures that are safely stored in other folders, I cant find anything. and every word or .txt document is unreadable. I have run spyware and virus scans, nothing else is out of the ordinary, please, I'm begging, some one help me!

Hi Kuru,

If you point to or click on one of the folders that you know should contain files, you should be told how large the folder is and given some indication of the contents e.g. 2.65Mb followed by the names of the files.

Do you see this or doed it show the folder as empty?

Silly question Have you looked in the Recycle Bin?

The recycle bin does not contain any of the missing files. and The folders, even the sub folders are all empty. they show thenselves to be empty. no objects, no bytes. I KNOW the files were there. they have been there for months. now, nothing. I never deleted on single thing from that file. I wouldn't discard my pictures or writing like that.

Hi again,

I am thinking that it could be malware but to be sure ....,

do the following:

Download and install Hijack This ( in it's own folder ) ie create one in C:\ call it HJT
http://www.majorgeeks.com/HijackThis_d3155.html ( sorry first link didn't work :) )

• Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
• It will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
• Click "Next" in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the "Select Addition Tasks" dialogue.
• Put a check by "Create a desktop icon" then click Next again.
• At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
• Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. You will be prompted to save the log.
• Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
• Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
• Post the log back in this forum

EDIT - sorry this list above relates to the first link and is not appropriate for the second .

Download HJT to it's own folder.
Install it and run.
Select Save Log.
Copy log but DO NOT DO ANYTHING ELSE.
Post log here.

this is an example for all.

MAKE FREQUENT BACKUPS OF YOUR DATA.

prefferebly on a removable media.

your "important" data is not realy important if you dont have at least 2 copies of it.

Hi Kuru,

I am not a log expert but I do not see an AV running. Do you have an Anti Virus Prog?
If not there is a good free one here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download886.html

Click the red triangle at the top of your first post and request that this thread be transfered to the Security Forum - a log expert will take a look and advise on any necessary fixes.

Good luck.

I actually have AVG on and run it as needed on my computer, as it tends to slow everything down when it is always on. I have done as you asked but i still havent been able to locate my missing files. i fear that they are lost forever. *sigh*

It could be that your user profile got clobbered. Go to My Computer > Local Disk C: > Documents and Settings > your username > My Documents and see if your files are there.

Thanx for the suggestion. but the files weren't there either. Its Freaky. the exact same amount of Hard drive space that should be allocated for the files is in use, but I can't find the Files. I am seriously losing my mind.

I'm not an expert either on the log - but I don't see any glaring information.

It almost sounds as though all your files became "hidden" in the folder. This can happen when an attribute change is made, but generally not to 100's of files at a time - unless the folder itself is also "hidden".

When you checked the folder properties, was the "Read-Only" box checked and/or containing a "square"? Was the "Hidden" box checked and/or containing a "square".

Also, try opening up the Windows Explorer, and do Tools > Folder Options. Select the "View" tab. About half way down should be a "Hiddent Files and Folders". Under that is a "Do not show..." and a "Show hidden..." radio buttons. Select the "Show hidden...".

Probably won't work, but I didn't see that used anywhere in the above thread.

- Jim

I have 512 MB or ram so i don't think that is the problem, and I have run AVG, Ad-aware, and Spybot, all comming up with nothing at all I know the files are there, because as i mentioned, the HD usage indicates that they are I just can't find them. repeated searches for the files have turned up nothing. I remember something similar happening a while back when i disabled the ASP.net log in account on my start up screen (i didn't need another account since i am the only user of this computer) some of my desktop files disappeared and i couldn't find them again. this is on a larger scale. but i didnt do anything that i remember to cause it is like this is a black hole.

As indicated earlier, if this is followed, it could overlay and corrupt (or really delete) the files that are missing.

To really see if the files exist in the folder(s) where they are missing from, there is a product that examines the disk and regardless of what/when/where, it will show you what occupies what sectors, cylinders, etc. The tool may provide a clue as to what happend because all the attributes for the object are also shown, along with a whole bunch of other technical stuff.

Specifically, the product is WinHex. This product allows you to open the partition, physical hard drive, and many other things. It shows you those objects that are "really" hidden (like $MFT, $LogFile, $Bitmap, $Boot and many others that MS puts out there that never shows even when you select "Show hidden..." option).

Once you are able to visible examine the disk, identify the files, and see where they really exist, this may provide a clue as to where they went.

BUT CAUTION SHOULD BE USED. This product traverses the clusters, creates an index to the disk, and any (I MEAN ANY) files that were previously "deleted" will be overwritten. The file is large, so the impact to recovery is LARGE.

The trial version will show you the stuff, but won't let you recover it.

If it is used, then pay specific attention to the "Path unknown" folder at the top of the folder list. This folder contains all those files that were "deleted". So the file folder name list will be large.

This product is only a "tool" to help identify a couple of items: 1) do the files still exist; 2) are they recoverable; 3) possibly what happened to them.

But please, choose this course with care. It is not for the faint hearted, and the impact to your recovery efforts can be huge.
