Your post does not say it you looked in the recycle bin. Did you look there?

Hello glassofwater,

If the files are not in your Recycle Bin, then you might see if the free program Recuva may be able to recovery them if you haven't already tried it.

Hope this helps.

All files of any importance need at least one backup copy while those of particular importance need 2 or more backup copies. Having no backups is asking for trouble. All recovery methods are hit or miss.

If recuva doesn't find the files or doesn't work, then consider using RecoverMyFiles from Runtime Software. It can scan the drive and find lost/deleted files. You can install it and try it for free -- to see what it finds, but you have to go online and purchase a license to actually recover the files. I've used it and have found it to be the best data recovery app out there.
