Hi

Welcome to TM Home users Community, a public site where volunteers try to help each-other , also there are TM Employees that can give answers, that is only at working hours. I am just a volunteer!

You can find it with "Search", or look in "Recycle.bin"

Kind regards,
Tom

Hi spam14bucket,

May we know what has happened before you notice that a folder disappeared?

Folder is gone. Not in recycle bin. I believe there is acsetting in Windows that creates an audit trail of file access. I’m looking into how to set that up.

Hi spam14bucket

You may check the Security Reports of the Trend Micro program to check if there is any folder that has been removed on your computer. To view the Security Reports, you may see the link below.

Using the Security Report feature of Trend Micro Security

Hope this helps.
