Default Help! Huge Ammount Of Data Loss!

well, i am extremely worried.

i had about 8,000 files of media files mysteriously disapear.

earlier today they were there, now they arent.

in the folder all files after the letter E are gone. i had them in alphebetical order..and only ones before the letter E are still there.

i ahve only 2000 files now in the folder..and when i right click on it i only have 30 gigs. but when i right click the drive the files were on...nothign has changed..the same ammount of info is still there. i thought maybe they mysteriously got moved..but i did a search and nothing came up..

please help me!

Check out your recycle bin

If it is not their, and noone on this forum can help you (some should) you should look at a data recovery specialist.

That is EXTREMELY odd for stuff to just dissipear.

If you take the hard drive to a specialist it's better to do it quickly, don't use the hard drive as the computer might overwrite that space.

And with it comes the only basic human duty, to take the consequences.\'
