DVR deleted all of my recordings!!!! - DirecTV

I have the HR-44 Genie DVR. We came home last night and all of our recordings are deleted. It will record new shows just fine. I went into the BIST menu and ran call three utility checks and they all came up at passed. I have rebooted numerous times. I am guessing at this point the 2 years worth of recordings are just gone, but what happened?
