    I have been working on this report for the past two days. I FINALLY finished my paper and went to go delete a few unnecessary screen shots off of my desktop. I accidentally moved something or deleted something I wasn't supposed to, so I hit ctrl+z a couple of times. Something happened and it completely deleted the folder containing my word file and a bunch of auxillary files within a file folder. I pressed ctrl+y a bunch of times (definitely more than I had pressed ctrl+z), and I even checked the recycling bin. I checked the temp files for word too, and absolutely nothing. Then, I pressed ctrl+y a few more times and voila. The file showed up. However I can't access it because the directory is comprimised.
    I tried creating a folder with the same name and directory path, but that didn't work either.
    I have attached a few screenshots. Please help.

    First of all, you shouldn't be saving documents (or anything for that matter) in the root directory of the OS (C:).

    Have you actually looked in This PC (C:) to see if the BME 245L folder exists there?
