Unhappy 3ds Max files randomly being deleted by computer?

Hi, I have noticed that in the folder - C:\Users\Username\Documents\3dsMaxDesign a load of stuff has randomly gone missing, I noticed this because I have 3ds max installed on two machines and when opening a file from one to another, a map was missing which is meant to be in 'sceneassests' folder (insided 3dsMaxDesign folder).

upon further investigation I have now noticed that all of the default scenes in the 'scenes' folder have also been deleted.

I have exactly the same version on both my laptop and desktop - 2013 3ds Max Design Student and its licensed until 2016.

I checked the size of the folder (C:\Users\Username\Documents\3dsMaxDesign) on my laptop and desktop and turns out the desktop which is missing the files has a total file size of about 3.7gb where as my laptop has about 5gb

I have done a system restore as far back as I can go but everything is still missing

The only clue I have to all this is that a couple of days back I encounted some kind of licensing error upon starting up Max,I don't remember exactly what it said, but it worked find after anyway and still is.

Any ideas on what's happened? or has this ever happened to anyone else, its slightly worrying lol

Is it safe to replace the C:\Users\Username\Documents\3dsMaxDesign from my laptop to my desktop or are there license files in there which will screw it up?

Thanks guys, any help is appreciated
