First, it was a random music file that I thought I had misplaced or deleted. A thorough search of the computer, including recycle bin did not reveal it, so I just transferred it back from my backup.

Then, I had a virus or several, got help on this board, everything was back to normal, as far as I knew, until entire folders started disappearing from My Documents. I ran chkdisk and even defragmented my drive, not really knowing what else to do, but (obviously) my files have not come back. The only thing I have installed since getting my system cleaned up was a Firefox update and some Windows updates, but my files have been disappearing before I did either of those.

I have no clue why this is happening; any help would be greatly appreciated.
