Missing Files in Windows 8

I purchased a game I made a copy of that disc as an image file onto my D:\Downloads\Games folder. After that, I installed the game, played it for some time, then rebooted into Ubuntu for some work. I came back to Windows only a couple of hours ago.

When I came, I found that the installed game files were missing and when I searched the installation location, it was empty.

I found that not only the installation files were missing, but also the image file, which was present less than a minute ago, was also missing now!

Please Help!!
