Files keep disappearing

Copper Contributor

HI, (I'm not a native English locator, so my apologies if my English is not perfect)

I use Office 365 and SharePoint with my company.

I shared a folder with a client so he can work on it, and I have access to the documents. The short way to access the file: my company name/folder1

For months it worked perfectly.

Today, my client called me and told me that his upload files keep disappearing.

After questioning him and asking him to send me a screenshot, I understood that the guy created another folder (folder_2) at the same level as folder_1. So the link to this folder is my company name/folder 2

And the files he uploaded here disappeared.

So basically, he created a folder somewhere he should not, and the files no longer exist.

- Have you heard of this problem before?

- Do you have any idea where these files could be?

It is weeks of work.

Thanks for your replies.

That is unusual. Have you tried using Search on the site? Have you checked the Recycle Bin?


Yes I made the verification.

I forgot to mention that he created those files on his computer.

But basically, he put them under my company directory, but not under the shared folder.

So I think the file where never uploaded to my sharepoint.
