Advice on recovering missing files. If a file, multiple files, or a folder goes missing from your usb disk or portable disk, you've got a pretty good chance of getting it back. And the better your computing habits, the better your chances.
But first, a warning: Every time you write to your disk, you reduce those chances.
The file might not actually be missing. It may have accidentally been moved to another location. To find out, use Windows' search capabilities to look for the file name. If that doesn't help, try searching for a word or phrase that you know is in the file, but not likely to be elsewhere.
In Windows 7 or Vista, you can use the Search field in the upper-right corner of any Windows Explorer window. In XP, select Start>Search.
If it fails, I recommend to use R2FD 2.4 to recover your missing files, It's easy to use, free, portable, and effective.
If software doesn't work, you may need to take it to a professional. There's probably a local shop where someone who knows what they're doing can search the disk more thoroughly.
