Are you using the Red X on the right hand side to close the Window,if so this is the Delete Button.
Open your Recycle bin the deleted files may still be there.

The photo viewer is supposed to autosave the last modification by default. I just rotated a few images on my own machine- after I click on the top right X to close the viwer, I see a momentary "saving" notice before the window closes. The images are still there on the hdd and on reopening, they show up as last rotated.

I suggest you run a sfc scan 3-4 times.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

RESOLVED:

run this command from command prompt in the folder where the files went missing.

attrib *.* -h

Actually the file does not go missing. They simply get hidden. I was facing the same issue till i found out that these modified files were actually getting hidden.

Not sure why this is happening.
But only way right now is to unhide them.

No need to do SFC
