I transferred photos, through Bluetooth, from my Blackberry to my laptop that is running Windows 7. They appeared in a Temp file (under Local) but have since disappeared. Is there a way to retrieve them? Does this mean I have something on my computer that automatically deletes these files? Thank you for any help, let me know if I need to provide more information!

I assume that you've already checked to make sure they are not in the Recyle bin. You could try a Data Recovery program. I've used Recuva and Recuva Portable. Remember that every write to the hard drive is potentially over-writing the deleted files.

Does this mean I have something on my computer that automatically deletes these files?
I do not know. I have a batch file that runs at startup that deletes the contents of %temp%, but I do not think there is a Windows feature to do that automatically.

I'm wondering why you copied/moved them to a temp folder, and why you left them there.
