    Lost File


    Good morning,


    Can someone help me? The program I am using suddenly gets an error about missing file. When I searched the folder through file explorer, the folder is missing. But when I try to access the files by opening an application and use File->Open, I can see the folder and its files. But when I try to copy the file or do something, I get an error that the folder/file cannot be located. I tried to use CMD and search for the file, but it does not show. When I try to make a folder with the same name, I get an error "Access is denied," so I know that folder is there. I tried to use chkdsk, it says my harddisk is healthy. Tried to update, status is updated. Could it be virus? I only had Windows Defender before the problem. Now, I installed AVG and it did not see any problem. I'm not sure when the problem started, because I havent been using the application for a week, but it may have started after an update. Thank you in advance.

    :)
