    I've dragged by mistake (bad mouse) the Videos folder to nearby Searches
    folder so I went back and cut and paste the Videos folder from Searches to
    it's previous location (upper level). For some reason however, the Videos
    folder still showed in Searches (although I've cut and paste it) so I went
    ahead and deleted what appeared to be a duplicate Videos sub-folder under
    Searches. I also confirmed that I want the files permanently deleted as the
    Recycle Bin won't tale them due to their large size. To my surprise, the
    Videos folder disappeared for good from both Searches foder and it's original
    location although, again, I only deleted it from the Searches folder...
    How can I undo this operation and restore all my 53GB of videos?
    I need your help guys... big time

    I just talked to someone that had the exact same thing happen with their "Pictures" folder and lost all their pictures. Fortunately, we were able to restore from a backup, but I'd think there's something very troubling about the OS in that this can happen.
