Just a follow up comment on this statement.  You said " ive now just went to open it and i cant" which is in direct contradiction with your other statement "the folders are empty".  If the folders are empty, then you were able to open them, otherwise you couldn't possibly know they were empty.  Seeing the cotradiction I assumed that you "believed" they were empty because you couldn't open.  Hence my question.
