Folder Disappears After Dragging It into All My Files in Finder, How to Fix

I had a folder open in a Finder window, and I was going to move files to it. So, I dragged the folder icon into the Images section in All My Files in the new Finder window. Now I can't find the folder anywhere.

A folder disappears after dragging it into All My Files in Finder? Don't worry; I have repeated what you said: dragging a folder into 'All My Files' in Finder on my MacBook, and the disappeared folder can be found in the Documents subfolders.

Suppose you can't find documents on Mac or can't find the folder by searching its name in Finder or Spotlight; it's suggested that using the data recovery software EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac to retrieve the disappeared folder on your Mac.

Step 1. Download and open the EaseUS Mac data recovery software.

Step 2. Choose the disk where the disappeared folder is stored, and click 'Scan'.

Step 3. Select the disappeared folder from the scanning result list, and click 'Recover'.

In addition, the disappeared folder may be hidden by macOS, and you can use Finder to find the hidden folder on your MacBook. Follow the steps below:

Step 1. Restart the Mac Finder by clicking the Apple logo and selecting 'Force Quit Finder > Reclaunch'.

Step 3. Press 'Command + Shift + Dot' to make the hidden folders and files appear.

Step 4. Select the folder you want, and drag it to a new location on your Mac disk.

Another situation is you move the folder to Trash. In this case, you should open Mac Trash and type the folder name in the Trash search box to find the disappeared folder. Using the 'Put Back' feature of the Mac Trash bin to restore the deleted folder to its original location.
