    I downloaded a lot of pictures on to my computer and openned them in to picture manager. I renamed them and a bunch of the pictures were named the same thing. When I tried to find the picture that I named before it with the same name it was nowhere to be found. How do I go about finding the other pictures I have with the same name? I have at least 5 pictures with the same names which is about a total of 20 lost pictures.

    Normally when one does a rename and there is a file already with that name, the rename is NOT allowed.

    What "Picture Manager" are you using?

    IF you were able to do this rename, then most likely the other file was replaced with the newly renamed file. This means they are gone forever.
