Folder disappeared!

Mags asked
Last Modified: 2015-10-05
I was doing a manual backup by dragging and copying to an external HD as we've been having issues with my clients backup plans.  I was dragging a folder and realized I didn't have the folder I wanted open so dropped it back on itself so it wouldn't copy or move to the wrong folder.  It then disappeared.  I have done a search of the computer and can not find it.

I desperately need your assistance as I am sick to my stomach and very concerned I have lost a very important folder.  I still need to check the working backups to see if he did select it for backup.

I look forward to your response.
