Hey there @LOUKIA1, I'm sorry to hear about that!

Have you tried doing a quick search in your File Explorer for some of the missing files?

Also, can you make sure that you have the option to "Show hidden files" enabled on your computer too?

If you're not sure how to do this, you can do a quick web search for the steps depending on your OS version.

Looking forward to hearing back from you!
