Windows 7: Seem to have lost all my music :)

17 Aug 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 - OEM Service Pack 1
Seem to have lost all my music :)

I have an attached picture of my music folder which I have on separate drive now when I go to access any of the folders it is telling me the folder is empty. Hmmm although it clearly shows that there is 159GB of stuff in there and 32.634 files so where are they ?

Does this have anything to do with Apple's Itunes? If so is there a solution to it as I would hate to lose my complete collection of music one of the reasons I have it on a separate drive.

Wow.... sorry to hear.

If all else fails on trying to access them, you can use Recuva to try and get them back. this is usually used for deleted file recovery:
