Maya scenes and sourceimages folders are empty

I went to open a scene and saw that there was a icon for a shortcut that I didnít want so I right clicked on it and said delete. Maya froze, So I had to do a force quit with the task manager.

When I restarted Maya I realized that scenes folder and the sourceimages folder are now empty except for a few random folders.

Please help!

I'm afraid this is a bug with Qt, which I logged with Autodesk.
Your files are not even in the Recycle Bin. The shortcut target gets deleted, then Maya recreates any folders as defined in your project.

We had this happen at work and had to go to the backups, otherwise I think you will need some sort of undelete program to recover those.

You could try this but I haven't tried this myself.

Good luck.

Yes, that's is what happened.

As great as Qt is, that is a painful bug!
