Files disappearing from PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Files from have dissappeared from my computer. This happened just as I transferred  files from another computer to this computer but when I transferred them I made sure the files were transferred WITHIN a folder of the same file name. But after opening the folder to view the transferred files all the 7,000 files were missing.  I did'nt think this file transfer could replace the other files as they were replaced WITHIN a folder of the same file name and not OVER a file of the same file name. How did this happen? Any Information would be appreciated.

    Regards,

  • Its possible that the 7,000 files are just hidden maybe as a result of virus.

    to make sure,navigate to the folder containing d "missing files",click tools>folder options,click on the view tab, under the hidden files and folders subsection of the file and folders section, select the "show hidden files and folders" radio button.

     

    if that doesn't work,run CHKDSK /F on the disk containing the folder.Goodluck
