Missing Folder and Files

  The Potter 16:56 01 Jun 2007

I am asking this one on behalf of a colleague because I can't fathom it!

She has a folder called Rents, inside, amongst others, is afolder called Nominal Activity 2 and there is a missing folder called Letters. The letters from inside the letters folder are now in Nominal Activity 2 and the contents of Nominal Activity 2 have disappeared.

I've known it for people to not realise they have dragged one folder into another one but nothing as wierd as this. I have checked all other folders in the Rents folder and can find nothing.

Please help!

your colleague has looked in the recycle bin? If she has, and that didn't turn up anything, tell her to run a Windows search using a filename if she can remember one, or part of one.

Thanks. Yes, we did this and searched too. We gave up in the end and I tried to restore her files from the backup system on the server. This didn't work either because the server kept ejecting the backup tape! Now we have our IT chap coming tomorrow to see if he can do it (maybe I was doing something wrong as I don't restore peoples backups very often!)

It would be interesting to know what happened in the first place though!
