Taking a chance that your computer is the same one you posted about here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/608835/pc-setting-wont-open/ and moving this topic to Windows 8.

If it is a different operating system, please state which on so this can be moved to the appropriate OS board.

Where did you copy the folder from?

Is the folder you copied still on your hard drive? If it is, either copy it again OR simply create a shortcut to the folder.

Are you sure you copied the folder instead of making a shortcut?  Please describe in detail how you went about copying the folder.

 

...i just format the folder from the hard disk after i copied it to my desktop

It isn't possible to "format" a folder.  Can you describe how you "formatted" the folder?

 

If you really deleted the folder and are serious about recovering the it (or rather, its contents) then you must stop using the computer immediately.  Next, download Recuva on another computer.  Remove the hard drive from the affected computer and run Recuva on it from the other computer.  You would have to either install the drive as a secondary one if it's a desktop with an empty bay, or use a USB dock or adapter.  If you are lucky, you may be able to recover your files if they weren't over-written.
