No idea how they got wiped.....software error/cockpit error?
The easy way to fix this is to grab the photo's from your backup.
What! you don't have backups!....shame on you.
Using Lenovo Laptop G585. Newly Installed W10. Picassa 3.(188.8.131.529)
Some time ago I downloaded photos from my camera into my Picassa 3 programme, before the installation of W10. They were shown in My Pictures.
A few days ago I downloaded two photos into my Picassa programme, after the installation of W10, and labelled them, they were also shown in My Pictures.
Today those pictures are all missing from both Picassa and My Pictures!
I have searched all my photos in Picassa and My Pictures. They are not to be found.
I downloaded a recovery programe called Recuva.(Piriform. 1.53) It took an hour an a half to search for and find all the deleted pictures - which included many thousands of pictures and images etc - not all photos - in the laptop.
Out of all the photos that I looked at, which took me over 3 hours, I found only one that was of the missing photos.
On hovering my mouse over it the pop-up information said - "Status - Unrecoverable" I found this strange as the representation of the photo was exactly what I was looking for.
I tried recovering it to a memory stick and also copying the image to a Word Document. However, these efforts were not successful!
My question is simply this - How can the recovery Programme show a missing photo so clearly and then it turns out to be unrecoverable?
(Incidentally, there was only one of this photo shown. Other photos shown amongst the recovered photos were sometimes shown many, many times amongst the recovered photos.)
I know that no one reading this question has a crystal ball, but does anyone have a guess as to how these over 35 photos could have been wiped from my computer?
