then all the files must still be there.
Give us more information. Using Windows Explorer, what files are not being displayed? Windows folder and every sub-folder inside? My Documents and everything inside? Are folders still being displayed?
Are all file types not being displayed, or just some?
Have you hidden any specific files recently, and then used Windows Explorer, Tools > Folder Options > View tab to set all folders the same?
What do you use to protect yourself against viruses, trojans and spyware?
I considered myself a computer expert as I have dealt with computer for more than 10 years... but today I basically lost all data in 160gb hdd. I use windows xp professional edition.
The HDD still shows that it still has 120gb of use and 40gb of free space, however, i cant see any files using windows. I have tried temp unhind everything and stuff, still no luck. this same thing happened to my psp memory stick duo.
