Solved Accidently moved My Pictures File or folder

November 10, 2013 at 15:56:34
Specs: Windows 7
Was runnin out of hard drive space on the drive that contains my Windows 7 operating system so I thought I would make space by cut & paste My Pictures file to a disk that had plenty of space. I thought I then could redirect Picasa to look at My Pictures on that disk. The pictures seem to be there but I can't seem to import them into Picasa. Help please

I have no idea why people cut and paste....copy and paste makes a bit more sense to me. Not sure how you can access the files now.

Try right clicking on the files you see and then copy and paste them to your desktop or into a folder, etc.

✔ Best Answer
I agree with #1. If you use Copy and Paste then you can check that you have achieved what you had in mind before using Delete on the original location. Best not do anything with System Folders unless there is a proper facility provied.

This method should restore your default folder (but make sure your Pictures are saved somewhere first):

If you manage to restore "My Pictures" folder with the above, then there is an inbuilt facility to move it to another disk. That would be the best thing to use:
EDIT: Safest to first create the new "My Pictures" folder on the other drive.
The above actions might automatically redirect Picasa but if not there is probably a way to do so within the program.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
