    I just loaded XP on a fresh harddrive. The old hard drive wouldn't boot but was hooked up as drive F as a slave. While trying to move a folder from old drive to new it disappeared. I never got a warning or message asking if I wanted to delete the folder but it's gone. Any way to recover the folder ?

    did you check your recycle bin?....or run a search for the folder to see if its hiding somewhere?

    if not, then there are utilities out there to recover data but they are somewhat expensive. I would consider it gone.
