The other day I started my pc and opend up windows explorer and I want to get a picture and I realized that all my jpeg's were missing. Not just in one folder but in every folder they were in. I was like what the h???. Whats not missing is bmp's mpeg's flv's png's and docs.
Has anyone experianced this. There is only about 50 pics I want to get back as I was in the process of cleaning the computer cause this is a old hard drive, roughly about 7 years old.
Is there anything I can do to recoer these lost files?
I haven't saved anything on the PC after I discoverd this and I have unpluged from the internet.
I can't run many programs as this pc is about to die.
When I get my new one can I connect this drive as a slave and run a utility or something to find these files?
Any help would be great.

Hello,

That is an unusual problem, if they have been deleted, then some recovery software is on order before something writes over them. having said that, installing the recovery software may write over the pictures you are trying to save.
when you get your new system you can set the drive as a slave and run recovery software.
Regards,

Alan.

This may seem a bit of a stupid reply but have you tried the search option? Just search for .jpeg sounds daft but it might work.

In your search did you search for.jpg. Or did you search for the file such as mypic.jpg. It is possible that some application has changed your .jpgs to a different format such as .gif or .tiff or some other of a multitude of other types. If you recall the file names they may show up as another type of file. Just a thought.
