I am unemployed and every week I file my claim. I have been using a folder setup (consistently for months) for my tracking and in case I need to produce info to the state).
Each week is dated (month & week ending), includes folder for each company I applied to and also includes a folder named Weekly which includes an .xps of the claim (always title claim.xps) and the confirmation (always conf.xps) from the Dept. Website with all my official info before I hit the next button and it is all whisked away and I cannot make any more changes.
So now to the really weird part. Last week, all of the files entitled claim.xps have vanished. The conf.xps are there and the other files are intact as well. I am not missing any other .xps files. I backed up 2012 (I have been out of work for over a year) and backed up thru Feb of 2013, but March, April and part of May - gone, just the "claim" files.
I used recuva to search in recycle bin (i looked for .xps, weekly, claim and all combinations) as well as my own methods to search in other places. I just don't understand how this would happen. No, I did not choose to delete all files named "claim" ;)
I have all my info, so not end of the world, but I am just totally baffled as to what could possibly make this happen? Oh, re a virus, I use SEP weekly. It has found a tracking cookie twice in the last few months via an email. quarantined, deleted.
Anyone have any ideas?
