Zip Files - Disappearing Folders


N

Novice2000

Yesterday I went into my folder and half my files were missing. A-N named
files were there and M-Z were gone. I found them in a folder called Zip
Files. When I told my boss he thought I had done something to cause this, but
I did nothing.

Today another person in the office came to me complaining some of her files
were missing. I looked in the same folder Zip Files and they were there.

Can anyone tell me what is going on?

What is the malware/virus status of the machines? If you think it is clean,
what programs (and versions) did you use to determine this?

Be sure the computers are clean:

Kapersky - all seems well

While it might seem well, scanning alone with just your antivirus program is
not enough. Make sure you have a clean base by at least scanning for
non-viral malware. MalwareBytes' Antimalware or SuperAntiSpyware are good
programs and the free versions work fine.

If you are using a server make sure the server is clean, too.

Otherwise, what changed on both machines?
