Thanks for the hint. I tried looking with the search box but only the already accessible files showed up, not the missing ones.
So, instead, I went back to Recent Docs, right-clicked on each of the folders and perused through its Properties. Some did not open anything further than the Shortcuts tab, stating the same message about it being moved, etc and the delete option. Luckily, one of the folders had all the tabs available so I clicked on Previous Versions, which gave me a back-up restore option. (I opened the folder from its restore points to see if I was looking through the right stuff.) Went through the folders a second time and somehow I located all the missing jpegs. Now this is the part I'm trying to figure out:
When I opened the file location under the Shortcuts tab, in the Target box, it read, for example: "\\localhost\C$\@GMT-2011.01.26-03.28.14\Users\The Fever\Pictures\2010-07-04 Everio HD", instead of what I figured it should be under, i.e. "The Fever\Pictures\2010-07-04 Everio HD" (which didnt open).
I'm not sure if this was the right move, but I copied the files back into the Pictures folder (where they shouldve been originally) as a backup in case the Restore didnt work. I suspect that a virus has leaked into my system somehow and it relocated my files. I dont know what it is and I already have AVG 2011, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, rkill, and TDSSKiller. Is there any way to get rid of this bug so it doesnt hide my files again?
