Then it's definitely time for you to start looking at having a regular backed up image of your main operating system. Macrium Reflect is the one I use as do a lot of others on this Forum.

Losing files that are important is something that should not occur with today's good back up systems & what you have experienced with lost files just should not happen.

This Macrium Reflect website has the various versions to look at & you can decide which version might suit you.
