Windows 7: Moved or missing files

Did you try Shadow Explorer as Ztrucker suggested. If you have older restore points, you will find them. BTW: nothing disappears from the system by itself. Someone made a mistake, but that is water under the bridge.

Thanks everyone for the good advice. Nothing helped me find the files but that tells me that someone probably accidentally erased my files. I realized that I had transferred my files from my xp HD to my windows 7 HD so I might not have erased the files from my old (now unused) HD. I hope that is the case. Thanks again for all the help! It does seem like these forums have some great people! I'll be back for more...
