I just returned from a trip through Europe where I shot about 2500 pix on a 64GB card. I downloaded them using a Kodak 50 IN 1 card reader. When I looked at the card in Windows Explorer, there were three folders on the card. I didn't look at the pix while they were on the card and, unfortunately, the card has been reformatted.

I started in Lightroom and imported the first folder and processed the pix. I found that I had pix from almost the entire trip in that first folder of 1000 pix. When I looked at the second folder, I found copies of many of the pix in the first folder but not all of them. In addition, there were quite a number of pix in the second folder that were not in the first folder.

Is there some kind of setting in the camera that tells it to make backups? If so, why only some of the pix in the first folder? Could it be something else?

Oh yes, the pix on the third card appear, at first glance, to be what I would have expected. All from the last city and none from the other folders and none that appear here appear to be on either of the first two folders.

Another Oh Yes: For the first part of the trip, I was shooting in continuous mode so I was running 3 or 4 exposures at a time. I was doing this because in Venice there were a lot of birds flying very close. Anyway, in the next city, Vienna, I recharged the battery and the voltage converter blew out the charger. Luckily, I got enough of a charge before it blew to carry me through the rest of the trip but I was shooting only single shots. However, If that was causing the problem I would have expected to see the problem with only Venice and Vienna. But it exists with Munich and Berlin as well. Only Amsterdam appears to be the way I would expect.
