Folders Disappeared in Windows XP

  Spider Mike 17:57 13 Jan 2004

While using my PC last night, all sub folders within the MY Documents folder on my PC just disappeared. I have lost hundreds of photos and thousands of ipod .aac music files (over approx 10 gig of data).
I have tried all I can think of, CHKDSK = all ok, Virus Check comes up clean etc.

I am stumped. Any Ideas ?

(I have the majority of the data backed up, but I have lost some photos that I would like to get back.)

when you look at your HDD properties in My Computer, does the same amount of space appear used?

have the folder become hidden? open My Documents, click on tools\folder options\view then check 'show hidden files and folders'

it's possible the contents have moved, try start\search and look for *.acc files.

and check your recycle bin.
