      First, this is a support forum not a chat room. You need to wait for a response. Second, the quality of that response will be in direct proportion to the quality of the information you provide, which is severely lacking. As suggested above, please provide as much information as possible so we can figure out how best to help you.

        No. But I don't know what you mean by you "opened your local disk to check your files and there's nothing". Tell us EXACTLY what you are talking about.

          I'm going to ask one more time and then I'm done. You are providing one sentence responses and I still have no idea what we are talking about.

          1) WHAT is supposed to be on d: drive?
          2) What is "My Folder (Yara)"? And What is SUPPOSED to be in there? Is this the only folder with a problem?
          3) WHAT files are missing?
          4) Do you have an anti virus app?
          5) What other drives are on your system, what is on them, and are they intact?
          7) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

            Look in Recycle Bin.
            Look in C-Drive.
            Search entire D-Drive.
            Search entire C-Drive.

              Please run full system scans with both Avast (make sure the definitions are current) AND with MalwareBytes. Files don't just disappear. Either you did something, someone else at your system did something, or something malicious is on your system.

              You can also download and run "unhide.exe", though I don't think it will help since you say the space has been reduced by the size of the files that are missing.

                It sounds as if someone...or you had copied/moved these files somewhere...

                    hi,
                     I know how desperate you must feel. I have had a similar disaster happen. The only solution that I had was to spend some money and visit a qualified computer guy who for a fee, fixed it for me. We had a power surge while I was working on the particular folder and it had shuffled it off to somewhere in the computer where I couldn't locate it. sorry I can't give you anymore helpful suggestions.

                      why did no one suggest Recuva?

                      Recuva
                      http://www.piriform.com/recuva

                      whenever you delete something its only marked for deletion. its only actually deleted when its overwritten. so the more stuff you do after an accidental deletion the less likely to get your stuff back.

                      try recuva

                        What version of windows are you using??

                        Do you know the file extensions of the missing items??

                        Actually Recuva is a good option to try. Please follow the instructions in blackbelt's post above and give Recuva a shot. Let's see if the files were deleted and are recoverable.
