System Restore

I have lost a huge file in shared folders of all my music. I am unsure how it has gone missing.My son says he has not deleted it. I am wondering as I have not used system restore before, if I take it back by a couple of weeks will it find that missing file.I am using Windows XP, thanks Ade

Probably not - SR only restores Windows files and settings.

Recycle Bin?

Has someone accidently set the file/folder's attributes to 'hidden'?

if so and you have 'do not show hidden files and folder' enables you will not be able to see it, even if it is still there.

have you done a search from the start menu, you can search for music/video or folders & files, it often comes up trumps for me.
