You do not mention which operating system you have or where your files
are located, but when you say "File Manager and go to the GnuCash files"
it suggests to me that perhaps you are not on Windows or you did not put
your data file in an easy to find place such as in a subdirectory under
"My Files".  Another possibility is that you put them on a remote
computer that is not always found.  In older versions of windows for
example, I think remote files must be in directories that are mapped to
drive letters.
