Problems this morning.

Once a week I copy my "My Documents" folder, where I store all my work from my laptop to an external harddrive. I did so this morning and the result was that all the files were on the external drive but half of the original folders on the laptop are gone. What could cause this? It's a bit scary.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thank you.

That's a head scratcher. Did you inadvertently cut instead of copy perhaps?

Actually, I think something like that happened.
