Only games magically deleted.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I used CCleaner, I deleted my temp, rebooted, and suddenly 500gb of games are deleted. Even more ONLY games deleted. Not my music, not my backups, just the steam folder for games and origin games folder. Is my HDD dying or is windows dying? Windows is on its own HDD.

Welp, I backed up what was on it and wrote 0s. Every program says it has no errors, no bad sectors, nothing wrong in the slightest. I guess it was something with windows, which I reformatted that which is another HDD.

I don't know what it was, but I do know confidently that there is no chance that Windows itself, functioning on correct hardware, caused the deletion to occur.

Pity you didn't save the CCleaner analysis redface.gif

I'm assuming it was something to do with the ccleaner myself. Maybe its not w8.1 ready. But both HDD check out with 0 errors. The only sounds from the HDD come from the 500gb windows is on and its not dying sounds just the normal sounds when its spinning up and reading. And yes I've done some extensive checks about this "sound" and its the normal one. I have HDD from all sorts of years that are WD and make it, and still work after 10 years.

My windows definitely was not acting normal. Prior to this I had a bunch of other weird problems. Reformat was a good answer for sure.


RIP 500gb of games, you shall be redownloaded.

There was nothing to back up sadly. I just found out some of my ram is bad. It wasn't showing error at a lower speed, but its def bad. Maybe that had some cause on it. Not really sure. Something had to trigger it and I used both origin and steam the day the games disappeared.

Pulled out that bad ram and the other 8gb running fine on XMP.
