ok I understand, theres a free program called Recurva and its found here http://www.filehippo.com/download_recuva/

Once you install that just right click on the file and click restore. That should restore the folder to it's normal state.

Tell me how did it go.

I found it

Lets hope this helps, the extension disappears when you put it in and the folder is converted into recycle bin.

Just rename the file into CMD prompt as the website below explains:

let me know as soon as you rename.

If you drag and drop the folder on the command prompt you might be able to see its real name if thats the problem.
