Hello and thank you for fielding my question.
I installed "find duplicate files easily" and when i ran it it moved a large part of my files to a directory
the desktop. I had set it to only copy but it still moved them. The program goes by other names like mp3
organizer, or file organizer. They have many websites using names like findduplicatepictures, mp3s, FindDuplicateFiles.org,
IdealSorter.com, Teklora.com. Teklora seems to be the main company. What the program does is it organizes your
files for you basically it moves everything to a folder on your desktop, even when you specify it only copy.
The trial version has a 99 file limit. After that limit you have to wait an increasing amount of time before you
can continue. Needless, to say, i have way more than 99 duplicates and was up to waiting a long time between prompts before
I figured out how to stop it. You have to click on the prompt to continue then real fast go to your tray icons and
tell the program to stop. Those prompts keep asking you to register to eliminate the delay. I figure most people
won't want to wait and eventually buy the program just to avoid clicking forever. Now that I have stopped it
I can't find a way to undo the file moving. So now all my files are out-of-order on a folder on my desktop arranged
by file extension and date. Numerous emails to their support over the past week have resulted in no response.
Does anyone know how to undo what this scam program did? I am at quite a loss since it even moved my desktop
icons.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I've never heard of that program. Have you tried a system restore to get back to where you started ?
