If you use the full path, starting with c:\ and ending with .jpg (the file extension for pictures) that search shows, you'll be able to find them in Explorer. That full path is unique. There's only one such file and everybody with the right permissions can see it. So if you can access it through search, you can access it through Explorer.
Computer crashed and had to use system restore. I lost all personal data files and photos. When I run search, though, it brings up my photos. The path is My documents/ etc. etc. but when I go to my documents nothing is there.
I have tried selecting "Show hidden files", but that doesn't help. If this information is still there how do I recover it?
