Where are my folders???

I am having problems finding a whole bunch of folders in 7 Home after moving from Desktop to D, they disappeared from Desktop, but are not on D. I am not a beginner, work all day with computers, but not IT either, rather a heavy user.

Welcome
Seven has a great feature, back up and restore. Give it a try and you can go back to when the folders were seen.

Would that help with finding and or restoring of 100GB+ of data that were moved though?

What it does is go back into time. I think it is more than worth a shot. What back up and restore does is take pics of your stuff on a regular basis, and allows you to restore from those images If not possible, this may work.

I have somehow made a disastrous mess of my favorites. I looked online for answers to this problem, and all I can find for a solution is cut and paste. This makes no sense to me for this particular issue because there's no way to "un-indent" a sub-folder and move it back in line with the primary...

Consolidate Shortcut Folders/File Folders in Open Dialogue
I was wondering if there's a way to sort file folders and shortcut folders so they are listed together, as in previous OS versions. I find it frustrating that 7 has forced the shortcuts to be split up into their own category rather than their file properties. I prefer to sort my folders by type,...
