Last night, I mounted the main hard disk in Linux Mint 14. And cut/paste a lot of files (about 8GB) from home folder to the mounted disk.

When the operation finished, I suspend my computer, and a few hours later, I shut it down.

Today, when I tried to view my files (which I has copied them last night) I couldn't find them, neither in source folder (my home folder) and destination folder (a Windows drive on hard disk)

Where are them? Is it possible to recover them?

Was that mounted harddisk a USB drive? With NTFS? Did you stop using it? Did you stop to use the source harddisk? – Bobby Jun 3 '13 at 6:57
It is my main hard disk. Not a USB drive. – kikio Jun 3 '13 at 8:44
