Missing files issue
I'm running 7 Home 32-bit on Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 machine with 4 GB or DDR2 RAM and ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card.
I have a 400 GB HDD (C), a 600 GB HDD (E) as well as a 1.5 TB Iomega external HDD (F).
All program et cetera are stored on C, and any download stuff is kept temporarily on E. I then move anything I want to keep and backup onto F (external).
I had download around 200 files, each ranging from 300 MB to 550 MB. However, not long after I'd moved them onto my F drive, they went missing. 200~ files... Completely gone. I definitely hadn't deleted them or anything. They took a long time no find and obviously to download, so this is a bit annoying.
Any ideas what might have happened, how to prevent it from happening in the future and how (if at all possible) to retrieve the files?
Thanks for reading,
