Missing files and folders from dir. windows 2008 server

I have a server that had shadow coping enabled and now is disabled automatically for some weird reason.  Well I have a folder that is shared is now missing files in them.

I have a folder hidden called Systtem Volume Information which has a lot of data.  How can I see what my files are in that folder.  They could be the missing files.

Thank you

System Volume Information is always hidden by default, as it contains information specific to drive operation and does NOT contain user data.  Additionally, the SVI folder is locked by the system as it is always in use by the OS.  There are no files in SVI that you personally need to be concerned with, the OS manages everything contained within as part of its day to day operation.

We are using DFS, which was causing the lost of the data.  Data was really there.  The system volume information folder actually does contain data in them when using DFS.  I have opened a ticket with microsoft to bring back the data.
