I have way too many thoughts to post. Several small suggestions, tell a bit more about the "route" this pic may have taken.
Did you have it saved in "my pictures"?
Send it to the recycle bin?
Was it an attachment via email?
How long ago did you lose it and etc....
Then I could maybe throw out a few suggestions 4 ya.
Did you try a "search" for it? etc etc etc
If you go to My Pictures folder this is where MS 7.0 stores "saved" type photos.
And once there click the toolbar and the "undo last move" "undo last delete" may help you? Maybe a System Restore to date of loseing it. move it to my documents or send it to yourself via e-mail then undo the Restore should you happen to find it. lol
Is there any hidden achive directory that stores photos that have been viewed in either of these programs? A picture of mine that i desperately need was deleted. Thank You!
