I renamed a folder in the public share. It was called Shared Photos and I changed it to Shared Photos and Videos… then the folder immediately disappeared and now I can’t find it.
I saw several other threads about this and other similar problems, but I didn’t really see any solutions…
It sounds like possibly there is some bug in the Web/App that causes a corruption of the file system. Some were able to find that their files were not actually deleted, but they were no longer tied to the location anymore.
I read one person was able to create a new folder with the same name as the missing folder, and the files appeared in the folder. I guess they were still associated with that folder name, although the folder was no longer there. In another case, the folders remained and the files disappeared - so perhaps the same thing in reverse, the folders were there, but the association with the folder(s) was lost.
I tried creating a folder with both the original name and the name I tried to change it to with no luck. I’m not as tech savvy as some - so I’ve never tried doing anything with SSH - though I’m not opposed to it if I can get my files back.
