Windows 7: Windows 7; Folder customizations have disappeared

Windows 7; Folder customizations have disappeared

hi all

My folder customizations have disappeared, they used to show the front cover of a music album (one folder per album) Inside, the subfolders, (disc1, disc2 etc) used to show the files (these individual files were again showing the album cover, changed using an MP3 tag editor.) These have also disappeared.

With over 10,000 albums all anally ordered and looking cool, i'm hoping that it's nothing to serious!

i first noticed this problem after removing my sata HDD (pc was shut down), oddly though, some other folders still show the pics, but not the important ones :-/

any help would be appreciated

Uh, hate to ask the obvious, but was the SATA HDD returned to the system?

What program is showing these album covers?

Sounds like the HDD removed had all the data for them on it.
