    I downloaded some pictures of my son on the day he was born. I backed them up
    to another hard drive in my computer. When I restarted my computer I had a
    screen pop up that say the file names of the pictures I had backed up had
    been changed as they were illegal. It happened so quick I couldn't see what
    the names and extensions were changed to. All but 3 of the pictures have
    disappeared. I've done every kind of search I can think of. Can some one
    help me out please?

    Thank you,

    Reid

    Use windows explorer NOT My Computer

    Search "All files and folders"

    Use the wildcards *.* for the file name

    select "when was it modified" and either
    pick a time frame (such as last week, last month,,,,,)
    or if you remember the specific dates use that time frame choice
    and run a search.

    This will result in a list of all files modified within that time frame and
    should include the picture files that had their file name modified.

    Sometimes when image file names are changed by accident the extension
    (*.jpg, *bmp, *;gif, etc.) is also changed which defeats the file
    association necessary to "open" the image. Usually a warning pops up
    regarding the change.

    This may have occurred during backup to the HD.

    Follow Lnkwizard2's advice - if you do locate the files - check the
    extension.

    I'd give it another shot. Date Modified, then go find it from there.
    You may find some odd looking files, but you can also see the creation
    date to verify before you start changing all of the extensions. Best
    thing for you to do is make an image onto the second hard-drive of where
    you put the files and then change all of the extensions. TotalCommander
    (Thanks BD) also is a decent program to hunt things down with aside from
    Windows Explorer.
