So I was browsing files on my computer, cleaning up things I didn't need/use anymore. I got to a ".rar" file. in an "Appdata" folder.. it was for a program I had uninstalled a few days prior, I right clicked and hit "delete" I decided to double check to make sure it wasn't anything I might need so I restored it. and opened it to see what was inside, and it was an ".exe" file for the program I had uninstalled, so I said "okay I can delete it" so I closed the .rar file and went to the file location where it was to delete it... but... it was gone.
The .rar file had disappeared completely. I tried searching for it using the windows explorer, tried searching by name, and it didn't show up, I even tried searching for the .exe file inside it thinking maybe I extracted it by mistake.. but nothing, that's gone too.. I'm a little creeped out by this, does anyone know what happened and should I be worried...
Also I should add that the .rar file seemed a bit.. odd. When I right clicked and hit properties where it says "Type of file" Instead of saying WinRAR archive (.rar) like every other .rar file, it said something like that but had some jumbled up letters and symbols in it I forget exactly what it said..
It looked sorta like "Win&38 archive" something like that.
Any ideas what could've happened. This is so weird.
