    Whole Directory Suddenly Gone - How? Why? How to get back?


    I was creating sub directories and then searching on a file extension - such as 'mp4' and then highlighting all found files and dragging them into these subdirectories.

    Moving them.

    emptying the original directory and sorting the files.

    Suddenly everything vanished.

    Some kind of slip of the finger somewhere in the middle of the keyboard at the right side - my right little finger or somewhere around there - and the whole original directory is gone and all the subdirectories.

    And nothing is in the recycle bin.

    Any clues on what's going on with this latest windows madness?

    any help?

    :)

    Directory Size Utility

    First of all nice utility, Mindweaver!
    Second of all, it's so nice to see that this section ain't dead.

    I have a few questions/suggestions, maybe you'd want to see ...
    • maybe you rename Get Folder button caption to something more intuitive? Add Folder, Get Folder Size, Check Folder Size or something like that?
    • Could you add subfolder files to the right pane? (it can be a tickbox with include sub dirs)
    • maybe you also add export list to excel?
    • there's delete file button maybe you add delete folder button too?
    • and finally maybe you can add UP button for directories?
