Hi and welcome to the BBS,
Some files came back, but others didn't? Seems strange
What sort of computer do you have? You can use this http://www.windowsbbs.com/adding_sys...fications.html
to add to your "My System" information.
I would do a full scan of an antivirus and there are online antivirus scans if you need a second opinion.
You could try making a new user. Control Panel -> User Accounts. Make a new administrator account, then, from there, see if you can see the files you want in your normal user account (C:\Documents and Settings\"your user name"\Documents).
Could you have "drag and dropped" the folder you are looking for into another place or folder? Try doing a search of the hard drive for the name of some of the files.
I would consider doing a "repair" reinstall of Windows, but some brand manufacturers don't offer that option, that's why I asked what sort of computer you have.
Note: in the meantime, don't do a defragmentation (not that you might be considering it), if Windows does not recognise the files as "good", it might overwrite them.
If you are really stuck, do a websearch for file recovery programs. There are freeware types, but may not be user (beginner) friendly. If you have a computer knowledgeable friend, they could possibly help you.
Any files you find, and you haven't backed them up, do so.
