I booted up my laptop today and i cant really say if all my desktop icons were there or not but all i did was browse a couple websites this morning and noticed later that 98% of my Desktop icons/files are gone. I was half a sleep when i booted up this morning but some how they are gone now except for a couple of them. I had some important ones on there and of course i did not have any copys of them. I searched my hard drive for them but come up empty. I checked the recyleing bin and not there either. How could they just disappear? I tried a system restore from yesterday and when i did that some folders came back but they were empty and none of the files i needed came back either. I tried a restore from 2 days ago but same thing happended. Any ideas on where i could look for these files? I couldnt imagine they got completey wiped out.
