I was just renaming a directory on my desktop using standard GUI procedure and it disappeared. I checked the usual things like recycle bin, hidden file settings, system file hiding and so on but it's still not there. I also can't find it using cmd.
Directory's previous name was microcontrollers and I changer it to Propeller, so there shouldn't be any legal characters and so on.
In the directory I had several PDF files, if that matters. So what should I do? Currently my available options are to attempt to access the disk from another windows installation of to try to access it using ntfs-3g from GNU/Linux, but I'm afraid that I'll do something to make things even worse.
