Re: folders on desktop gone

Right click on your desktop and then organize the icons by and then click Show Desktop Icons and also Perhaps restore your system to a date prior to your problem that would fix things. Otherwise if files were deleted you can look in the trash or Use a program that retrieves data erased from the hard disk
