A Strange One Indeed

Recommended Posts

Two weeks ago I noticed that the contents of my Downloads folder was missing with only a files for applications running at the time left behind. I initially thought that I mistakenly deleted or moved the files, however I could not locate the files anywhere else on any of the three drives. The odd thing is I attempted file recovery via commercially available recovery software which I previously was able to use to recover data from drives, USB media, etc. None of the files were found through any of the scans. Malwarebytes, and Nod32 has no indication of any viruses or malware. Event Viewer shows no unusual activity, and I have not received any ransom emails, etc. Does anyone have any recommendations for next steps?

I am a little paranoid thinking that if I had deleted or moved the files, the recovery software would find some trace of at least one or more files.
