Hello @Tishtosh

I try a resolution process, even if there is a lot of question marks.

Did you have a look at the list of the recent documents through File>Recents documents ?

If you see your lost files, open them. Then look at the place where they are stored by having a look at File>Save as : in the dialogue box that will show up, you will be able to see the access path of the concerned file. Take a good note of this path, where maybe the other lost files are stored too and correct it the way you want...

Hope this helps
