hi there, i have just looked in my docs on windows vista for a few college essay files to forward to someone and have fouund that loads of my files are missing. it states that they were last updated on 29/12/08 at 8.17 in the morning but i certainly dont recall doing anything at that time. i do a regular backup thro the windows restore centre to an ext drive - last of which was 3/1/09 but havent tried that yet. any ideas,
a) where the hell theyve gone! or
b) how i can find out what i may have done at 8.17 on the 29/12

if one of your files has a unique word or name you could do a search for it. I take it you have looked in the recycle bin?
