If you haven’t done it already, I would recommend using a cloud service (Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.) to back up your work, so your work won’t be so easy to disappear ever again.
The ones I’ve mentioned above offer several gigabytes of cloud storage with a free account. If you have a Microsoft or Google account, then you already have access to either Ms. OneDrive or Google Drive. Plus you can install their clients on your computer to have the contents of a folder automatically syncronized across all devices (in the case of Windows 10, OneDrive comes pre-installed with it).
Disregard this if you already knew about them, seeing the post above is from last November.
