Lost all my pictures in my "My Pictures" Folder

I randomly lost all my pictures in my "My Pictures" Folder I don't understand why and what would the best way to go about fixing it. I have done data recovery before but I'm not sure other things may have been lost as well.

Right click the folder the pictures were in-go to restore previous versions. (Or properties-previous versions tab) Choose the day before you noticed the files missing. Click the folder of data and time you want to restore and click restore.
Presto, everything back as normal.

Another reason to always backup:

Backup User and System Files

Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup

There's no option for restore previews versions, I think BlueStacks - Home was the cause of this a changed the file path
