Please help me. I have many songs, movies and many imp files and documents in the internal storage and suddenly all is gone. Though it shows that it takes the space. Last night I connected my phone to the pc to copy a kernel modules into my phone. I copied and flash and the phone went into bootloop. Then I flashed the previous kernel I was using-ncx and it booted normally. Then I realized many files are missing but the phone is using the space for those. Then o rebooted and flashed the kernle again thinking that it was a kernel issue. After o rebooted I got everything. Then the whole night everything was normal. When I woke up I saw that the same thing happened aagin after a reboot. I rebooted because sound was my playing. It said unable to play media. It rebooted and sound played but the same files where again missing. The I flashed stock kernel. Still the same. Then downloaded viper Rom 3.3.6 and flashed it with and without full wipe and still the same. Please help anyone. I don't have a backup of these missing files and its very urgent.

What happends when you mount the sdcard as a mass storage device inside the recovery ? That way you go around the rom and see the space and hopefully the files directly ! Then at least we can say its a rom problem and not sdcard problem !

I tried that but it shows the same files and folders that it shows inside the Rom.

When you have your phone mounted to your PC.

Control Panel -> Folder Options -> Select "Show hidden files/folders".

See what that does for you.

Did you try to flash a 4.2 rom? 4.2 rom's usually move your data from /sdcard/ to /sdcard/0/ or something, which might explain why you cant see the data when you flashed your previous rom.

When connected to pc and show hidden files. Nothing happens. I already had viper Rom since it released. After copying files from of pc it happened suddenly. I thought reflashing the Rom would solve but no. The titanium backup folder is also gone. The sd card does uses space so I think the files are recoverable. Please help me to recover them. Please.

I found something. The files are still there in the internal storage but not directly in the sd card. It automatically got moved in to a new folder>>> sdcard/0/
Everything is there. How to solve this issue? Make my phone recognize that folder as internal storage or just make it like before?

Sdcard/0 is a file structure that happen when you flash 4.2 roms because of the multi user feature. When you flash other roms make sure you copy all files from sdcard/0 to the root folder before flashing
