Click on Start > Computer. Then click on the partition where you think the file might be. It shouldn't be too hard to locate your pictures. Write down the drive and folder they are in. When you have done that, we can then continue and fix your Libraries to go straight to them each time.

If you have prior restore points ( prior to the screw-up), you can find them with Shadow Explorer:

I've used a program called File Scavenger for customers and it's worked pretty well.
