Cannot find a folder

I was using Roxio Creator 2011 Pro to restore a DSMA image of MP3 songs. The path to some songs on the image had to found/rentered as I had rearranged the order of some songs and created some new subfolders.
The main MP3 folder which I was navigating was LOVE SONGS. Inside that folder I had recently created a new subfolder Indian & Pakistani Instrumental. However while using Roxio Creator that sub folder some how vanished from the main folder. All my attempts in locating that folder proved unsuccessful. I used PowerDesk 8, Directory Opus and Copernic Desktop Professional and even Recover My Files to locate it but it proved futile. I am suprised where did the sub folder go? Can the file be found and restored? I am using Windows Seven 7 Ultimate

Have you done a simple search as in *.mp3
Have you checked the Recycle bin?
I ask to expound on what you have already stated.

Yes checked the Recycle Bin nothing doing there. I do have a master folder e-music folder from where most of my mp3 file reside. I had made that sub folder for my convenience to consist of mp3 files of similar traits. So basically I think no mp3 is lost. But I want to know where did the subfolder vanish in thin air like a conjuring act of Houdini. How to use *.mp3?  PowerDesk has the * button.

The name of the sub folder was Indian Pak instrumental not exactly which I said and which was submerged into another folder called Ghazals. This was located by manual search. The only difference was Pak  which I thought was Pakistani. but still it should have come into such power desk searches Like Power Desk 8 , Directory Opus, Copernic Desktop Professional because most of the words were the same. Could any body tell me why such power search programs failed due to  a slight mistake of the name when most of the remaining name was the same . Indian was the same , Instrumental was the same the only difference was Pak instead of Pakistani.

He means using *.mp3 to search within Windows 7 itself. Hit the Windows + F key on your keyboard. It should bring up a window to search. Type in *.mp3 and hit ENTER key. See if any of the results are from that subfolder.

The programs you used to search including Windows will search for the exact file name unless it supports wildcards (ex: ? for single characters or * for any characters). In your case you can try searching for Indian* and see what the results are.

Just the Windows key and the F key itself. Not the F (Function keys) on the top. If you want to use the F3 key, you can do that if you are in the desktop. Just minimize any programs you have open until you see the desktop and then hit F3. It should also bring up the search window.
