data moved from server to raid - folders exist but no file contents

By cmeisner ·
WIN OS - multiple versions, multiple machines.
I had to move several GB's of data off our network server, and "moved" ('move to folder') the data to a RAID5 storage . However, although the folders exist, even drilled down several layers, there are no contents - no files of any type (.doc, .jpg, .ppt, .xcl, etc...). Since the stff was moved, there's nothing left on the server to recapture (not to mention I did this a few months ago, and recently needed to access some of the data).
Any ideas???

Do you have a backup from prior to the move?

Otherwise it's gone unless the company is willing to perform a Forensic Recovery on the drives it was originally on which will destroy those drives and cost a lot of money.

Even then I wouldn't be overly hopeful.
