Windows 7 lost data Tags: Windows 7 Last response: October 21, 2012 3:01 PM in Windows 7 Share mikeabercrave October 21, 2012 11:33:54 AM Hello, I moved some folders into a folder using Windows 7 and the moved worked but all the original data in the folder disappeared. Undid the move which worked but the original folder is now empty - lost about 8Gb of images. This was definitely a Windows 7 error - I did not delete the contents accidentally I work in IT and know what I'm doing. Any ideas?

The correct way is to copy the folder,and then verify it got to the new location, then delete the folder from the old location. The easy thing would be to restore from backup. | Report abuse Brett928S2 Windows 7 Authority October 21, 2012 1:12:37 PM Hi This was NOT a windows 7 error...it was a USER error....
