    i connected my oneplus to my computer. i was baking up some songs. when i deleted one of the file windows explorer stopped responding and all of a sudden what i see is only applications are left on my oneplus and all the media files like gallery music movies videos downloads all are lost. now even pc is showing 51gb free of 54 gb. what should i do now. some files were really very important. ;-(

    Sounds to me like some kinda malware on your PC might be responsible. Scan your PC using MBAM, reconnect your phone as MTP device and try a good data recovery software.

    Good luck.

    My file manager on Windows 8.1 also stops responding quite frequently, but it never does anything to the files on my OPO or other devices.
    You should try retrieving the lost files with a deleted files restoring app, there are many of those in Google play.

    Kaspersky doesn't tend to pick up malware. I'd give rez1_k's suggestion a try and run malwarebytes.

    Your emulated storage is everything. Literally everything. You shouldn't have deleted it. Why would you delete it?

    The in and out of it is that your files are gone. hopefully you had a cloud service such as G+ backing up your photos and videos? if not get one or 2 the more the better. there are tons of free ones, I use mega, google+ photos, onecloud and copy to back up all my photos on the go. the reason for so many is some countires block some providers so your photos dont back up. Make sure you always have a backup and an backup if the backup breaks.. backups are important
