I have files or directories disappearing from my hard disk volume
Explanation: One or more files or directories seem to have "disappeared" from a disk volume. You were using them or referenced them recently, but now they are nowhere to be found.
Diagnosis: Files that seem to be lost on a hard disk are more often simply "misplaced" than actually lost. By this I mean that the files have been moved by the user, or the wrong file name or directory name is being used, so the file is still there but seems to be gone. Rarely, a disk corruption problem or virus can really make a file disappear.
