Windows 7: Sub Folder Missing After Copy

Sub Folder Missing After Copy

I was preparing to re-install my OS by copying all my important files, installers, etc. into one folder. When I copied a folder from My Documents to this new folder on my desktop, one of the subfolders disappeared. I've been unable to locate the missing folder or files through either windows search or Pandora Recovery. I'd really appreciate help locating it because it contains the source code for some tools I've written.

Hello and welcome to the forums hairycheese!

Have you tried using WinDirStat to look for the missing subfolder?

Thank you for your quick responses. I've tried both suggestions and have been unable to locate the missing folder or any of its associated files. I don't know how the file-system works, but is it possible that the pointer to the folder has been lost?

Edit: I found some options for deeper scanning is Recuva. I'll see what it digs up.
