All My Games And Emulators Are Gone

Also another thing I just thought of was my XboxMediaCenter Dashboard's skin changed from the 360 skin to the default without me telling it to. This was before my cache was cleared. I cleared it because I thought it might help that problem.

Yeah, I know it's kinda hard to confuse - But there's a common issue where if you try to load more then 256gb onto a partition without first formatting it in a certain way, data starts getting deleted (often in great amounts). Your free space display won't go up; the data just goes AWOL.

EDIT: I did do this some time ago. I could have it confused and the 250 broke and I have a 500. If that is true what would happen if I deleted the stuff that made me go over 256? I can go to XBMC too I thought you were talking about unleash
ANOTHER EDIT: I decided to try and delete the cache one more time and it said it couldn't execute the Delete command. If that helps diagnosis.

I'm afraid deleting stuff won't help if I'm right - The issue is due to the amount of clusters the file system can handle. If it attempts to write to one outside it's limit, it instead starts writing at the start of the drive (destroying parts of the file table as it goes). There's no known way to reverse this.
In the meantime, try not to do anything that would cause the system to write more data to disk. That'll only make matters worse; really you want to backup everything you can as soon as possible whatever the problem is.

this will couse the data to show that its used but not be able to find anything. lock the harddrive then reformat it sorry only way to fix it. ( if thats what you did)

You need to work out how large your drive is. If it's over the 256gb mark, then you need to reformat the suspect partition with XBPartitioner (making sure it uses 32kb clusters).
If it's under the 256gb mark (which'd surprise me given the nature of the problem), then I'd advise removing the drive from the X-Box entirely, have a PC wipe the entire thing, and then do a full surface scan over it before re-installing it back into your console.

If you're softmodded, to be on the safe side you should backup your EEPROM (if you haven't already done so). Install ConfigMagic to E: and have that extract it to the root of that partition. You then need to FTP it across to your PC.
Once you've got the remains of F: backed up, install XBPartitioner to E: and use that to reformat the faulty partition. Make sure 32kb clusters are selected when you tell it to do the format (the Y button toggles, if memory serves).
When that's done you should be good to go from there.
