files in Data directory gone?

I installed on my portable devices:Portable Thunderbird with Enigmail+GPG 1.5.0.2.
After few days all files in Data directory gone- I can't see them, but they are still somewhere on teh USB drive (becasue of space). When I run thunderbird,app ask me, that there is no prifile and if I want to make new one?

Can you please help me, how can I get this data back.
Thanks.

Corruption

That scenario usually indicated logical corruption on the drive. Did you back it up recently? (hopefully) This is usually caused by removing the drive before it is done writing or when an app crashes.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Thanks for reply. Now I remove USB key correctly and I laso turn off automatic update for new versions, because then my app crashed (Thunderbird and Firefox)
