I have a problem with my wife's laptop. She has Windows XP with SP2, and she loves taking pictures. She stores them on an older (3 or 4 yrs.) Dell laptop. She had specific filenames for each picture, to tell who was in it, when it was taken, etc. This evening, when she started looking through her pictures, all the filenames had been switched, appearantly at random. This is her personal laptop, with a password only she knows, that hasn't left the house. Also, nobody has visited recently, and no one can enter when we're not home, so I don't see any way someone could have logged onto her computer and changed these filenames. Besides, there's something like 200 pictures on there.
*ETA* 40 or 50 pictures are completely missing!
Does anyone have any idea how this might have happened? Does anyone know what might be done to fix or prevent this happening again?
