One stupid opinion,maybe your files are hidden?
And go to Safe Mode,check from there. And another one,boot some Linux distribution like Ubuntu as live cd,mount partition from there,and check.

Have you checked your trash? It could be that they were deleted by accident or you could have moved the whole folder inside another folder. Try searching on one of the file names that you know should be there.

If you have restore points - then you will have shadow copies.

Use shadow explorer to copy back anything you need from your shadow copies:

Dont think most people have system restore turned on for external drives.

Seems like a good idea to me - perhaps most don't tho.
