Windows 7: Lost Photos changing Admin Authorization

Lost Photos changing Admin Authorization

New guy here!!! I was not able to edit my photos and was sent a link to look at my authorization level of my user. I have one user ADMIN and it seemed to be authorized in doing everything.

Anyway I chose a file folder with recent photo clicked on properties and then went to advance ....anyway don't remember what I clicked the file disappeared and I have not been able to retrieve it. I retrieved some of the photos by going to recent activity and that was a folder with in the folder that is now MIA.

Is if possible these photos are archived?? I just have no clue why the folder with these photos disappeared and more importantly why I can't find them on my C drive anywhere. I am using a Sony Vaio all in one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I was a previous XP user and must say I think I preferred that to this.....

Hi and welcome to the Forum
Sounds like you might have accidently checked the "Hide Folder" box that is in advanced. Try this:
Go to Windows Explorer, Click Tools then Folder Options then Click the View tab, then scroll down and check the "Show Hidden Files and Folders" button and see if your folder re appears!
