Because of the recent photobucket fiasco, I decided to transfer my saved photos on my computer to a different website. I keep all my photos under a sub-folder on my Desktop folder and it's called "pictures". I literally had over 1,000 pictures in this folder.
After a quick little upload problem on the website when I tried to post just a few pictures, suddenly I couldn't open my "pictures" folder, an error comes up call "Location is unavailable" with the text "C\users\Jeff\Desktop\pictures is unavaliable. If the location is on this PC, make sure the device or drive is connected or the disc is inserted, and then try again. If the location is on a network, make sure you're connected to the network or internet, and then try again. If the location still can't be found, it might have been moved or deleted."
I've tried reading other website on how to fix the problem, but most of them seem to be about "system32", which this is not. This is just in regards to the one siingle folder with all of my pictures in it.
Is there any way I can get my pictures back? Or are they lost forever?
