    While trying to get pictures from facebook into my picture folder, I clicked on "convert to Adobe" link. :rolleyes: Now when I go to my picture folder, there are no pictures, only links. HOW can I undo this????? These are all family pictures and I don't want to lose them. :eek: I use Microsoft Windows XP.

    What do you mean "links"? What are they and how do they look? What do Properties show?

    Any file that you do not have backed up is a file you should plan to lose. All hard drives will fail.

    I right clicked on the picture, wanting to send it to my picture folder. This was not an option. There was an option to "convert to Adobe". So I clicked on that hoping I could then send them to my folder. I did, they went to folder. But when I open the folder, there are no pictures...just separate links for each picture. Therefore I cannot view all the pictures in the folder without opening and closing each one individually. I'm sorry if I'm not being too clear, but it's the best way I can explain it.
