This is a very unusual problem. Never came across such before. I think a system restore should help you out in retaining the deleted files. You can perform the action as follows:

* Go to the start menu.
* Click on all programs.
* Then select accessories.
* Then to system tools select the system restore option.
* Set the date when you r system was working fine and that is your files where existed.

This shall help.

A virus can be the concern issue for the same. This may be the reason that your systems important files is been deleted. Check for the issue. You need to run a virus scan wizard for the same and check out whether there is any virus in your system that is causing this problem.

There can be a possibility that some other person might have logged into the system and may have accidentally deleted the files from your system. It is not possible that the files may be deleted due to windows updates. The exception can a virus issue that may have resulted for the problem. Other than that I don't think there can be any issue. So check out for the same hope you may get to a conclusion.

Well if your files have been deleted then you could get it back by using an application tool or software called as Recovermyfiles. This software basically has the capability and tendency to regain the deleted files from the system. Almost 98% of the deleted files can be regained. You need to install he application and then execute it. Select the type of file that you need to recover. It will the search for the deleted files on your hard disk and display it to you. Then save the files to other location. Your work is done.
