Windows 7: Why did a photo album moved to an OS folder?

Why did a photo album moved to an OS folder?

Hey, I was using my computer, when I noticed that a photo album that I had on My Pictures folder suddenly changed it's location to a Microsoft OS folder. It also changed the icon on the folder to an other kind of icon. I also discovered that inside that folder where other types of pictures that I had never seen before, maybe Temporary Files, not sure. Was wondering if you had any answer for this. Thank you very much.

Hello myxomatosick, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post back with some screenshots showing this to help better clarify? I'm not sure if this in a library or one of your C:\User\(user-name) folders, and a few other things the screenshots will help with.
