I clearly remember),... I remember this was the starting of trouble,then I brought the internal hard(I hadn't any external hard at that time) to the shop and after some days go and come lastly I returned it back to home happily that noticed the partition that was after it has been deleted like previous and after that it was the linux turn,...and other things that you know.
Apparently there were way too many files moved in a single step. It would have been preferable if you had given it more time in Ubuntu for it to think about how to manage the files in the NTFS partition.
Using the sync command could have helped as well, since it would emphasize the need to do some more writing of the files that were still ongoing. Either way, waiting more than 4 minutes might have helped, but it's not guaranteed either.

As for possibly recovering the files, it would have been necessary an auxiliary hard drive, in order to attempt searching for the missing files and copying them from one hard-drive to the other.
The other possibility would have been to undelete them directly on the Linux partition, which could have worked, if nothing else was written on top of it.
Although in either situation, an auxiliary hard-drive would have been necessary.

at those days I had very stress and wanted to resolve the problem and didn't track the probable causes.
The partition was probably only partially recovered, but the file/folder structure was not healthy.

Usually in these situations, usually the first rule of file recovery is: don't touch anything (or at least don't write any new files), as soon as you detected that something is missing.
