I spent the entire day recreating the MP2 files from the Studio 20 folders saving them all to the folder with the garbage. An hour ago I looked and there were at least 30 files of approx 1.6Gb size each. Now there is NOTHING, but the 374 files of jibberish. WHAT IS GOING ON?

I imported two of the first ones on the list and they are included below. NOT readable by me.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

TONIGHT I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT WHEN STUDIO 20 ULITIMATE IS CLOSED ALL THE EXPORTED FILES TO MY L:drive into the folder name "Videos from SSD(V)", end up being deleted. Some how in the Studio 20 setup screen where all the other file locations were set to C:\***** the render location was the place on the L drive. So upon closing Studio it cleaned the folder out with the exception of those unreadable files. I moved it back to the C:\ drive and now I can start saving the MP2 files again. I have no idea why Studio thought to grab that drive/folder - I certainly did not change it since I wasn't even familar with the setup panel - I had been using it the way it installed!!!

So I guess I now know what happened to all my files in that L: folder location - must have been last night when it went crazy

Take screenshot of the contents of an entire folder
I'm trying to take a screenshot of my music folder but it is too big to just alt+print screen. Is there a way to take a screenshot of the entire folders contents built into windows or a 3rd party program that can do it.
