    All of my folders in "my pictures" are empty except maybe 5. Had alot of irreplaceable ones. Is there any way to restore them? I tried system restore but to no avail. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you

    Try a program like Recuva.

    Keep in mind though, that the more you run stuff on your computer after losing the pictures, the lesser your chances of ever retrieving them.

    If that doesnt work you can maybe pull out the drive and use a usb sata/ide connector and hook it up to another computer and see what you can salvage.That has been a lifesaver for me when ive suspected a hard drive of failing.It might not retrieve all of it or any of it but its worth a try.

    heyya DiMeoDoes, and welcome to TSG. I've edited your offer out; you may want to read the rules page at www.techguy.org/rules.html . We tend to keep all advice open and in the public forum.

    thanks for understanding,
