Windows 7: Folder just deleted itself, now empty..

Folder just deleted itself, now empty..

Logged in and my folder with games is now empty. 0 byte, nothing in it, everything is gone. Nothing else has happened, it's just that folder. Here's what I have tried to figure this out:

- Anti Virus scan
- Defrag
- Data Recovery software

The folder remains completely empty. Any idea what could cause something like this?

EDIT: I was installing Elder Scrolls Online, and apparently it deletes all other content when installed to a custom folder. So problem solved I guess :S
Installed ESO to custom folder and it deleted all other content in that folder! - Elder Scrolls Online

Hello have you tried to go back to a restore point to see if that will help.
