    Do you have your folder options set to show hidden and system files? The best data recovery program I've ever used is Active@Data Recovery, I had a Western Digital that was absolutely trashed, and in the process of the recovery the program actually fixed the S.M.A.R.T status from Bad up to Good. I got all my files back, too.

    and file scavenger and O&O recovery
    expensive one is admin pak 5 by winternals
    I have used a few more as tests platforms
    top 2 worked fine
    have not tested winternals as of late, the system boot disc works great
    maybe next test will be a corrupt drive
    look out active file recovery will be test that soon
    who knows what makes data do what it does or the drive or MS operating systems.
    go to your event viewer see if it logged a hint as to the problem
    check in ,right click ,my computer,manage,disk managemnet
    what does that show
