[Hidden-tech] Recover lost documents on Mac OS (no icloud)

Hi Shel,
Thanks, yes I scoured the search function, used every possible clue, and checked all the histories, and it is like this folder and all of its documents never existed. I got into Terminal and searched the temporary folder, and it looks like a root folder might be missing. I don't know enough to dig any deeper than that. I wonder if I somehow put an entire root folder in the trash.

The folder and and all the documents it contained have disappeared from every history, the trash, the finder, everywhere.  Any thoughts?
