Hello all! I've been hanging out in the graphics card forum, getting lots of help from the wonderful celebkiriedhel.
Now that my game is up and running, I am ready to load my backed-up neighborhood files and downloads folder. There's just one problem...yesterday, I was on my EHD checking out my backup folder; when I closed out of the folder, it totally vanished. Disappeared into the ether...not in my recycle bin, not in the hidden files. Just gone.
And of course, I neglected to follow the cardinal rule of backing up your files, and did not make a back-up of my back-up. So my files are gone at this point. I ran some recovery software which was able to recover 90 of the files, but I had over 17,000.
I am just so angry at myself. I know better than to only have one backup of my files. So I guess my question is, does anyone know of any other way I could possibly recover my vanished folder?? I have no idea what caused it, but I'm hoping that somehow, somewhere, it's still hanging out in cyberspace...
Thanks to all who took the time to read my little essay!
