What happens when section of indexed locations is deleted in windows 7

I found a file named Index Locations under Searches in Windows 7.
I thought it was rather long, so I deleted a section prior to January 2013.
A box came up saying French could not be ????? but could be deleted parmanently. I clicked YES.

Then I noticed that the number of icons on my desktop (where I keep most of my folders and files) appeared to have shrunk.

Have I lost any folders and files and is there any way to retrieve them ?

Thanks
