Cut and Paste Problem

I was cutting and pasting files (excel, word, jpeg) from my desktop to another location on my local drive and I hit cancel in the middle of the transfer. Now I can't find half of the files in either location. Where should I look? Thanks.

If you haven't done anything else (rebooted, copied again etc), "pasting" might still work if the files remain on the clipboard.

As you've discovered, it's safer to copy & paste, then delete the originals than to cut & paste.
