After much deliberation and testing, I have figured it out. The folders and their contents became hidden. Of course I now have to undhide all of them. But it is resolved so far!

Glad to see your problem solved, but you said that a huge amount of data was gone, then you said that this data was hidden. If you didn't hide those data who did -it?
So, scan your somputer for viruses,malware and others.
Good luck.
