    I just deleted D:\Stored Movies\2016 by mistake.
    I have not written a thing to the drive since I did this.
    If there a free program that will just undelete a *folder* as opposed to wanting undelete files to a different drive?
    All I need is something to put the folder "marker" back in place.
    Thanks!

    Recovers files not directories from NTFS according to docs.
    also DOS based - kinda funky.

    Recuva - in "tree mode" - Easy.

    Well according to the webpage
    Code:
    TestDisk is powerful free data recovery software! It was primarily designed to help recover lost partitions and/or make non-booting disks bootable again when these symptoms are caused by faulty software: certain types of viruses or human error (such as accidentally deleting a Partition Table). Partition table recovery using TestDisk is really easy.
    
    TestDisk can
    
    Fix partition table, recover deleted partition
    Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup
    Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector
    Fix FAT tables
    Rebuild NTFS boot sector
    Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup
    Fix MFT using MFT mirror
    Locate ext2/ext3/ext4 Backup SuperBlock
    Undelete files from FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2 filesystem
    Copy files from deleted FAT, exFAT, NTFS and ext2/ext3/ext4 partitions.
    TestDisk has features for both novices and experts. For those who know little or nothing about data recovery techniques, TestDisk can be used to collect detailed information about a non-booting drive which can then be sent to a tech for further analysis. Those more familiar with such procedures should find TestDisk a handy tool in performing onsite recovery.

    I needed to undelete a folder - not files. Recuva does that in a Windows interface.
