This isn't a Windows 7 problem but I am thinking the problem would be the same from XP to 7. Just for clarity XP Pro is my problem child. I did a search for *.zip files. (I am trying to get all my pictures edited and on an external hdd) Made a folder for them. At the search menu, I 'selected all', cut, then clicked on my new folder. Got an error msg 'can't read from source file' then ALLLLLLL 68 files went into hdd hell. I cannot find them! Where did they go?
I can put them all back on with my backup CDs since that's how they all got there, but that is a long process (I have many backup CDs).
Any clue? I don't want to shut down in case they are somewhere.
Winter is on the way!!
