Windows 7: My Photo Gallery

My Photo Gallery

I have Seagate external hard drive. I don't know what I did, but almost all of my pictures ( about 40 items left in Seagate ) wound up in my photo gallery.

Does anyone have suggestion as to how to correct my error or am I going to have to drag pictures from my photo gallery back to the Seagate external hard drive.

I did contact Seagate, they were very nice, but they could not help me so I thought someone could help me with my problem in Window Seven Forum.

I do appreciate any help.

Photo Fuse in Photo Gallery stopped working
I've used Photo Fuse a few time but now when I try to use it, it thinks for a few seconds then either shuts down Windows Live Photo Gallery or restarts it. I've tried upgrading from 2011 to 2012 but this has not solved the problem. Can anyone help?
