I noticed something strange on one of my databases today.  In the folder that stores table names/data (bin\mysql\mysql5.1.36\data\tablename), I only have .frm files.  The database works fine, but this folder does not contain .myd or .myi files.  How can I be missing those two file types and still see all of my data?

InnoDB tables, perhaps?
MyISAM tables use .myd and .myi files, but InnoDB tables don't.
