    Help please, I was trying to cut and paste a file of pictures into My Pictures directory but I had one picture open. This caused an error so I closed the picture and went to do it again, as I normally would but the original folder had gone, some not all of the remaining pictures had moved to my pictures directory, but i can't find the remaining files.

    Yes have now checked the Recycle Bin and Norton Protected files. I have some files deleted from Windows\System32\Wbem\Repository\FS these are Image.map and Objects.mpa files. Could these be them. These are all pictures of my baby girls just after they were born. So stupid of me not to have a backup. Thought I did but I don't

    FOUND THEM. Somehow the file has been renamed to My Pictures file.

    Probably time to make a backup before they take another walk. :D
