I hope someone can help me figure out what's going on.

I was moving my pictures to different folders, I was dragging and dropping rather than copying and pasting, but I realized after I was done that they weren't being passed to the folders and they're also nowhere to be found.

I don't know what to do and I'd hate to think my files are lost forever.

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 15, intel core i7.

I'm so pissed off right now.

Are you sure you didn't just drop them to another folder? My wife does that on a regular basis, and it's my job to find them. :) Windows Search sometimes fails to locate lost files (no clue why), so I use Total Commander. Ah, and don't forget to check the trashbin.

Click Start button, in the Search box, type the full or part of the name of one of your lost photo's. Then you will be able to find them.
