Ok here's the deal. I was messign with Ubuntu and GNOME3 I'd just mounted my Windows drive and was trying to add my normal folders as shortcuts at the side. In doing so somehting has gone wrong and my entire Documents folder has dissappeared from existence. Some messages flashed up but I did read them and saw nothing about files being deleted, I thought I was accidently copying them. THe long and short of it is that my Documents folder has completely dissappeared but the files still exist (I found some while searching to check under a favourites folder. As far is I know that just provides shortcuts to the files). This is also backed up by the fact that I only have 60GB free on my HardDrive. My Documents folder was really quite huge and deleting it wouldn't leave me with so little space. I am running in WIndows 7 at the moment but have Ubuntu if needed to try and repair this filesystem. I honestly don't know what's happened. The files are there but...not... Situation as I see it: THe files exist. THey are there on the harddrive and counting as used space. THe directories, however, are gone. ANy links to the file have dissappeared. They don't count as deleted files and can't be recovered that way. I have tried running a chkdsk to see if windows can fix it itself but no luck.
