    I just restarted my Mac OSX and all my personal files were gone. This includes my music and pictures. Search can't seem to find them, but there's not enough free space on my drive for them to be gone. How can I find my files? I think FileVault might have had somethin to do with this.

    Edit: Actually my GF just admitted to renaming my home folder and running file vault. So... I checked in the users directory, and there are like 4 other homeusers 1 through 4, but none have my files in them. Anything you can tell me?

    don't let your GF on your computer anymore...or give her a restricted user account to log in with.

    Only he stated at the top "...search can't find them..."
    I don't think spotlight will either.
