I was recently working on some .pdf's and saved them in the shared drive after sometime I found some of the workings have disappeared. In Adobe Acrobat reader, I can still see them as recent records and can also see the location I saved them for the last edit. But they are just disappeared in that saved folder somehow. I also checked my recycle bin, nothing there from this month so I'm sure I didn't delete them accidently. So just wondering if there is any way to find out why and how they disappeared and recover the workings?
If it is a shared drive, how many other users were having access to it?
Is it shared drive over a local area network environment? A shared drive in a cloud space? A shared drive between two computer at home?
What is the operating system that you're on?

I would say to use the restore feature (right-click on network drive, select "Restore previous versions" and select a date that matches the last date that you see in your Acrobat's Recent view).
You may also want to verify if this happened after a recent update of the operating system or Acrobat, or both. In which case you my try this approach:
If that would be the case you may also want to try a similar method using the "Backup and Restore (Windows 7) " feature from the control panel.
Otherwise, see if this other tips are relevant to your issue in the links below.
