Windows 7: Missing image files

OK, then, what are the statistics on the folders in the new build? I wonder if it is simply hiding the folders from view for some other reason....

For example, guessing at how large a folder was before, do a properties check and see how much the OS reports the folder actually has in it right now....

Also, what was the methodology used to save the files to the D drive - just manually selecting it every time or was Vista 'customized' to use those folders on D as the Vista special folders? If the latter, then are you still looking in the the same location from the My Computer / explorer window, such as in Pictures, or are you physically navigating to the folders themselves where the data used to reside?

Hello John,

Unfortunately, she has no idea on what her folder sizes were beforehand. The files were saved to D by right-clicking and saving as to partition D.

Very Best Wishes,
Bob.

Login as a member of the administrators group and take ownership of the drive recursively then set all permissions for the current user (or the everyone builtin account if you want to use the shotgun approach). Try not to touch the recycler or system volume information or things will get more complicated.

Before you do that, - I want to make sure first that your wife actually performed the *upgrade* and didn't accidentally perform a separate clean install....hence I want to see the partitions..

Sorry. My post was not meant for him but rather in rebuttal to the assertion that restrictions established by Vista could not be overridden by 7's ownership/permissions mechanism.

Hello, when I try to attach a file or upload one to a site, I cannot preview the file as I used to earlier today. I see only a Windows default image (attached), but when I right click the image on Windows Explorer and choose Preview, I get the real picture. Thanks, Luis.
