left my computer defragmenting using diskeeper 8. left the C drive defragging and scheduled my other storage drive for about 4 hours later. woke up in the morning and there were a few error messages that i thought were nothing. came back from work in the afternoon and it started doing some recovery thing. panicked when i saw the word 'deleting' and restarted. canceled the disk checking. when windows started it said it couldn't access the drive.
re-started and let it check saw it 'deleting orphan file blahdeblah' and also 'recovering blahdeblah.utx' .utx is an unreal tournament file type, so it must have known something was there. when windows started this time about 3/4 of my files were there BUT the 3 main folders i use: mp3's (10gb) movies(30gb) and Unreal Tournament 99 & 2004 (8gb) were missing.
these are the 3 main folders i have on my computer (apart from windows etc
Is there any way of recovering these folders. i guess something went wrong when de-fragging and they were maybe left messed up?
when i try and open the shortcut it tries to find the link fails and comes up with a variety of errors. these are 2, this one is for a movie recording prog for UT
this one is for the UT shortcut
sorry this has been long but the more info the better i guess
many thanks to anyone who can help
