Customer Question

Hi! I recently had a couple of files on my desktop i wanted to put into another folder in my documents. When i did this i did not realize that i had other files within my documents folder highlighted and selected. When i put my destop files into the documents folder, the highlighted documents within documents were replaced with my destop files. Nearly 76 files were replaced. It a little hard to explain this issue, but i know its serious because alot of those files were college papers i need.
