A couple weeks ago I noticed that files from my "recent" list in Word and Excel had disappeared from my work laptop (Windows 7, Office 2010). I started noticing other random Word and Excel files disappearing, as well. If I restored the files from the corporate backup, they usually disappeared the next day.
A scan of the laptop revealed no issues. I had my laptop rebuilt. I copied my old files back to the laptop and a day later, files are missing again. I have scanned the system with McAfee and Kaspersky Internet Securiy 2013, and no bugs were found. At a friend's suggestion, I scanned the laptop in safe mode with Kaspersky - no threats found. I scanned the external drive with Kaspersky but found no threats.
I've lost over 100 files from my laptop since copying files onto it Wednesday (I ran a side-by-side comparison of the directories of my external drive and my laptop.)
My company support team is insisting that I must be imagining this. Any thoughts on how to fix it would be appreciated. Since it is a company laptop, my access is somewhat limited. Thanks.
Update: I am using Windows 7 with the latest security patches that have been provided by my company. I have lost 63 more files since running a "dir *.* /s" command yesterday afternoon.
