You can try the Start Search and type in the folder name in case it was moved from the original location.
there is a free program Recuva which may restore it. Download: Piriform - Download
If neither of these steps find/restore it, I'm afraid it's gone...unless you can pay a forensics recovery service about $4000 to do it.

Recuva isn't free, however I did find it and it is empty, no expense info. I'm doomed.
