Finding 'Lost' Files..
Ok, so I have just had an issue with my Sound Card which I have seemed to have fixed.. (yes phunkdust I deleted the thread...)

Ok, so how do I find this file???

It was a .wav file saved in My Documents and when I do a search it isn't there.. It has vanished...

Is there some way I can look for this folder somewhere in my computer??

(and yes, I'm not very technically minded)

hold down Windows + F and follow the wizard to search for the file...

check your recycle bin as well...

if it's gone altogether, you can run some data recovery software, which can take hours depending on the size of your drive... the golden rule with that is never install, recover data or boot to that hard drive. (so whack it in as a second hard drive in another pc)... i'm guessing that your using that pc now in which case the data is possibly already overwritten

but good luck

my interpretation is alfp had issues with his/her sound card.... he/she fixed that issue, went to play a .wav file (to possibly test the soundcard )... and then released it was missing...

Spot on!!

Yeah had sound card issues and the .wav file I was using when it stuffed up has magically gone!

I would like to know how I could possibly find this file, that's if I can..

I have already searched my computer using 'windows' + F but it doesn't show up...

Computers fucking shit me at times!!

Thanks for the help
