Windows 7: Lost a large portion of pictures during a copy/paste to my external.

Lost a large portion of pictures during a copy/paste to my external.

I realize that this may not be the proper section to post this, but I lost a pretty large chunk of my pictures during a copy and paste to my external. They aren't on the external and they aren't on the original computer either, I've searched the hard drive and nothing. I also looked to see if I had any previous versions available for restore but I do not. Any help or suggestions is appreciated.

Hello Tyler, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to recovery any from the original location using the free program Recuva.

Hope this helps, :)
