Missing Documents in PDM vault

One of our users has just tried to find an old SolidWorks document and can't find it in the vault. On closer inspection it seems as though most of the data in a large old project of ours has disappeared. Looking at the actual vault data on the server it seems as though the data is there, however it is not visible from any workstation. I'm not sure if it's affecting any more projects.


The vaultdata stored on the server is in the format of files called "_sldprt" for example in a folder with the file name, so I can't just take a copy from there manually.


My access to any files should be sound as I'm an administrator.


I hoped for a moment that another administrator had archived the project, but no joy there.


Any ideas?


We're running SW2009 SP5.0
