    Could you explain what you have done to your system.
    It just sounds odd that your files disappear when you have installed Linux mint, unless you are using Linux mint in Live mode.

    Hello and Welcome!

    Did you complete the installation, and eject the CD/DVD? Or are you booting with the CD/DVD in the optical drive every time?

    You will need to post more information if you have not resolved this issue and need help. From the info you have posted, it would seem you are running from a Live CD/DVD or flash drive as suggested above. What you describe is expected behavior in that situation. What exactly did you do to "install" Mint?
