Hi, I have just had this problem tonight with Windows XP. Some of my files in the Kodak pictures folder (the most recent ones dating back 3 months ago with names like '2005-06-23" suddenly weren't there when I checked. I thought they'd been deleted, then I did a search for them and I discovered them in a place called "C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Recent" but I can't get to this place through my computer. When I clicked on the link in the search results they opened up with the location listed at the top as though they were still in the Kodak Pictures folder.

And also, although all the files between march last year and march this year were still there, the Kodak pictures folder wouldn't accept me trying to create a folder with a new name. I went create new folder, name 2005-05, and then a couple seconds later it disappeared from the Kodak pictures folder!???

I copied all the photos across to a new folder which wasn't inside Kodak pictures and so its ok now, its just strange that they don't want to stay within the Kodak pictures folder??

hi you can create a shortcut to recent, by right clicking it and select desktop, rename it recent documents, then make a new folder as you have down,and move it to pictures. that is where i keep all my photos and i have over 3,000 stored there. because you will find that recent does clear itself out every so often.

thanks for the reply.. I restarted the computer, and when it restarted it did a whole bunch of stuff, I think it was called Checksum? or something like that.. checking or repairing something, I've never seen it do that before. But the folder thing seems ok now
