I had some private pictures and videos in a folder along with some normal wallpapers. I checked today, and was shocked to find out that only the private pics and videos were not present in the folder, but wallpapers were present. My wifi device remains connected to the laptop. What has possibly happened? Has someone got my private files if they hacked my wifi? Can a hacker get access to files on hard disk drives of laptop if wireless wifi device gets hacked? Is it that easy?
The key that's used to connect to the device is written on the device. No one visited my house, so no chance of getting the key that way.
I am using HP I7 with windows 7. Avast antivirus free version is active.
Laptop is password protected.
