Post Significant and reproducible data loss on macOS Sierra
I mounted my Windows partition using the steps outlined here:

https://github.com/osxfuse/osxfuse/wiki/NTFS-3G

Then, moved a folder (CMD-OPT-V) from NTFS partition to my OS X partition. It asked me for my administrator password. It created the folder, however it did not move the files. The files in the original location were also deleted.

The files are no longer in the Windows partition nor the OS X partition. I have run chkdsk by logging in Windows, and the files are not there.

I ran percuva to find deleted files, but it could not find any.

Is there a way to recover the files?

Thank you in advance,

PS: Later on, I tried to reproduce if the problem exists if I just simply copy the folder. I was able to. The folder structure was copied, but none of the files were for other folders on the disk.

You may try ntfsundelete from the ntfsprogs package, either in your MacOS environment (if it exists) or in your Windows environment (downloadable from http://jp-andre.pagesperso-orange.fr/ad ... l#download)

Note : I have no knowledge whatsoever of the MacOS environments, and I cannot help with the original issue.

Regards

Jean-Pierre
