Hi all,

One of my folders in my hard drive is supposedly missing.
When i opened the drive( d drive) last week, this folder suddenly disappeared.
This folder is where i keep all my music and video downloads.
Strangely the programs which i download my music and videos still download into this folder when it apparently isn't there.
Also, my d drive still has the same capacity before and after the disappearance of the folder.
So my conclusion is the folder is still there but i cant see or access it?

I have scanned my computer with norton anti virus and no infections were found.
Would appreciate all the help i can get.
Thanks.

Have you done a Search for the folder?
It may have been moved.

Do you have Windows set to view hidden files, and folders?

Would you happen to be living with anyone? Perhaps parents?

This is not the type of behavior associated with an infection. Chances are it was done manually.

You're welcome, foothegreat.

If you want to change it to, not hidden, right-click the folder, and select Properties.
Click the General tab, and at the bottom, under Attributes, remove the check next to, Hidden.
Click Apply.
Click OK.
