Wife started a new job yesterday but before she left the old one, she saved lots of documents that may be of use at her new place of work on a flash stick. She accessed the material yesterday, but today when she went to do so again, it would appear that all of the data has disappeared. Could it be that the data is still on the flash stick and if so how can she access it. If it's not there, then where could it have gone to?

First off, is that ethical?  Did she try it on other computers?  Maybe she could boot from a live Linux disc and see if the material is there.

Yes, it's her own material.

Did she try it on other computers?

Yes, she brought it home and tried it on ours. Reported as 'empty'.

Maybe she could boot from a live Linux disc and see if the material is there.

Not sure what you mean here.

You could probably try Recuva and see if it recovers the missing documents.

does the flash drive show it is empty in terms of space? so if it a 4gb drive, would show 4GB free of 4GB.
