Can you give more details about what additional file extension was given?
Was there a pattern to which files were missing and which were left?  Were
all uploads changed/deleted or only some?

I had a similar situation several years ago and it turned out the server
had been hacked through someone else's site/account but security was not
set up appropriately and once they got access to the other guy's account
they were able to come in and mess with mine...  That's a total shot in the
dark without having more information, though...
