I have a set of tasks that has been running daily for a long time.  They are in a specific folder in the tree.  All the sudden, the tasks are gone.  They are still running, so I know they are somewhere, but cannot locate them.  What would cause this to happen, and how can I find them?

This is not the first time that tasks have suddenly vanished.  Normally, we have to go through the process of restoring or rebuilding them.

Hi Deborah,

Because the tasks still appear to be triggering and executing, then the tasks have not disappeared. The most likely have been moved to another folder. Do you have an extensive folder structure?
