please help!!! i have a TON of pictures saved to my computer in the "My Pictures" folder. i was cleaning out my computer today & all of a sudden, when i went back to "My Documents", the "My Pictures" folder was gone (all it will show is the "Public Pictures" folder)! i panicked & looked in the "Recycle Bin". nothing.
if i go to the "Start Menu" & search "My Pictures", i think some of my pictures come up, but not in any designated folder. @ least they*re all still there though.
what should i do? should i try to save them all & make a new "My Pictures" folder (which i heard doesn*t work b/c the "My Pictures" name is already recognized), or is there an easier way to restore my folder (i already tried the "restore" option, but since i don*t do the windows back-up, there were no "shadow copies" to restore. i do have a USB passport, but there are some recent pictures that i just put on the comp today that aren*t on the passport)?
sorry for the overload of info; just trying to be as helpful as i can. hope somebody can help me- i think i*m in the right place. any & ALL advice welcome- please & thanks a million<3!!!
