NEVERMIND, GOT THEM! I still don't know what I did, but I did download a memory card recovery program and they found them, it doesn't say where they found them, but it did say they were deleted from the recycle bin. I don't know how that is even possible. The first place I checked WAS the recycle bin and they weren't there. But I have them so that is what matters. If you all wish, you can comment, but I have I'm happy.

Hi everyone, well, I might be the "waterdrop queen", but when it comes to moving my pictures from my memory card to my desktop folder, I leave a lot to be desired..
Here's what I did, and now I'm lost. I put my memory card into my computer, it had only 15 pictures on it, 8 of which were my grandaughters first basketball awards show. I highlighted the first 8 pictures, moved them to a new folder on my desktop. They all moved, because I saw them moving. Then I went and renamed the folder.
Then I highlighted the rest that were on the card and moved them to "waterdrop folders" that always stay on my desktop.
So after awhile of messing with the drop folders, I thought I'd go back and take a look of the basketball pictures because I hadn't even had time to look at them. I opened the folder, and they are not there.
I was dumbfounded. And the crappy thing about it, I NEVER "move" my pictures from my card, I always copy until I am sure everything is where it is supposed to be. I think that since I was only working with 15 pictures on the card, I was careless and just "moved" them. Now, I'm sad because I know I can never go back and re-shoot those 8 pictures. One was of her coach and the others of her accepting her little tropy. I am sooooooo bummed.
I have looked at the sd memory card recovery programs, but they are greek to me when it comes to downloading then retriving and all that. Is there something that maybe I might have missed when looking for these pictures on my computer? They have got to be somewhere. I looked in all my waterdrop photos, I've looked in my documents, I've looked in the recycle bin, I've looked on every icon folder on my desktop and I can't find them. You would think if I accidentally deleting them, they would be in my recycle bin right? Any suggestions would be so greatly appreciated, especially since her mother is coming to look at them tomorrow...ouch!
