How to Recover Invisible Directory File?

“During my usage of the hidden folders, my system crashed and upon restart I could not find two of the folders which I hide using third party application. I can find the remaining folders which were hidden. Two of my folders which I unhide and was using at the time of my system crash are now not visible either on my hard drive or in the application. When I calculated the hard drive partition space, I found that the data was not deleted and the size is showing including the folders which I can’t view. How can I retrieve my data back? I tried enabling 'view hidden folders' but it was of no use. Can anyone please help me what had happened actually and suggest me what to do to recover my data? It is damn important for me
