Hello. New user here looking for some help. I was cutting and pasting 4 media folders from C:/media/movies to C:/media/TV shows

I cut them. Clicked my media folder link to open it in file explorer and the TV shows folder was missing.

It was just there 5 minutes prior because I was looking to see what files I had there already and what I needed to move over. This folder was pretty large...30ish shows with multiple seasons. I believe it's too large for the recycle bin, but I checked there anyway. I also ensured the view hidden folders option was checked. I can see all other hidden folders. Not sure how that would have happened anyway. Also, a search for file names produces nothing. This is the only drive on the PC. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't notice a big increase of free space as if it was deleted. All other folders in C:/media ate still intact.

Just FYI - I no longer use "cut".  I always use "copy", then I go back and delete if it's not needed.

I've lost too many files that way :(

 

If you've cut and it hasn't appeared, try pasting again to see if it was just a glitch

 

Try GetDataBack Simple from here:  http://www.runtime.org/

The free version will tell you if there's something left to recover - then they'll want money if you want to recover it.

You can also use the free PCInspector from here:
