Hi all,

A whole series of files of mine are suddenly shown as 0 bytes.

They all seem to be in the same folder + subfolders, and be quite large, around the 1GB mark, or larger.


Any idea how I can recuperate them, or what this is?


I've ran chkdsk /f /r, but without any luck.

I've checked for the hard disk health, and it passes all non mega-thorough tests.

I've ran Malware Bytes and Avast, both of which didn't show any infections.

I've booted up from an Ubuntu Live USB, and the files also appear as 0 bytes there.

Maybe I should add I very recently switched to Windows 10, and these files are in my data hard disk, which is separate from the Operating System one.


Many thanks in advance
PS. Apologies, if this is maybe in the wrong forum?
