I accidentally moved my Desktop directory, using the windows Command terminal, and every file on my desktop was removed. The command I used was move C:/users/desktop. I forgot to identify the 2nd location (where I wanted it to be moved), and it essentially just moved it somewhere else or deleted it entirely. Is there a way to undo this, or does anyone know where it was moved to?

    What was you current working directory at the time? "Specify source only (will copy the file to current folder, keeping the same filename)" -- from the manual. – ctrl-alt-delor Apr 7 at 21:49
  • No.. not deleted. Can you remember a portion of the names of at least one thing there? If so.. from command.. go back to the root cd c:\\ then dir /s "*snippet*.*" where "snippet" is the thing you are looking for. You should see it's location show up in the list. – Señor CMasMas Apr 10 at 21:11
