Entire folder gone after deleting one of its subfolders
Hi. I went to delete an empty subfolder in my user folder tree, but when I did so Vista seems to have deleted the entire folder above what I indicated as well.

I wanted to delete "c/users/me/music/wtf", but instead Vista deleted "c/users/me/music" and everything else in it. As soon as I realized what was going on I hit the "cancel" button, but the entire folder is still gone.

If I run a search for any of the files I knew were in that folder, Vista tells me it's still there, but won't let me open them.

This was definitely NOT caused by me clicking anything wrong.

Any ideas? How can I get c/users/me/music back?
