Personal Disaster

My hard drive was almost full, so yesterday, I MOVED the contents of My Pictures to an external drive. This morning I find that all the lose files and folders moved, but all the folders are empty! I lost all the contents of My Pictures and every other folder I had in My Pictures. Damn, this is bad, really bad. Years of pictures, tons of files..... I gotta try to recover them.

UPDATE! I rebooted the computer and plugged in the external hard drive and the pictures were there. The folders did not show up as empty!
WHEW!

WHEW, I was just about to contact you with a long explanation to suggest a program I use to recover data...Hiren Boot Disk. Parted Magic has saved my ass multiple times. I highly suggest having this boot disc around at all times! Many other helpful tools on it as well!

Oh good! I'm glad you didn't lose your pictures. I know what it's like to lose years of favorite pictures. Next time, you'll know what to do : )

What Jess said! We all know that heart-stopping feeling, glad it was not for long.
