I honestly thought that I got the "better" of win8.1.. it kinda grew on me.. until a few weeks ago when after doing some maintenance in "safe mode" I was totally unable to get back to normal startup. After a very frustrating hour or so.. I gave up and decided to go with the "refresh" option , that promises NOT to delete any files etc.
It took me back to win8.. lost all my progams.. was a pain and took another two days to get it back to what it was.. then I discovered some empty music folders.. all seem intact.. but no mp3 tracks.. only album art left.. was annoying but I moved on..
But , as i discovered today, it's still happening.. some new folders I checked today.. same thing , empty , they had full cd's inside in just a day or so ago,, all up about 200 GB of music gone.. but the C drive it's on.. shows the same free space ! ?
If i delete 200 GB.. or even a fraction of that , it should increase the free space.. not happening..... if anything the free space is decreasing.. gone down about 30GB since this started..
I have posted about this when it first happened and got no meaningful explanation or response..
There's something weird going on.. and I would really love to find how to stop this happening !
Oh this is a 1 year old Lenovo E530 Thinkpad running windows 8.1 64 bit
Any help would be appreciated.. TIA
