When you go to My Documents or to Favorites in "all users", can you find any of your documents (not necessarilly the pictures) or favorites?

Right-click Start and then click Explore. What user accounts can you see under Documents and Settings?

You can connect the hard disk with the lost pictures to any working machine. If you don't find other user accounts or if you can't find any of the old data in "all users" then the material is lost, probably because other user accounts were deleted.

Hey im not sure if this helps or not, but I just started the computer back up and can see that the pics are all there on the desktop under "pics" it wont stay on long enough for me to move them to a jump drive though.

It helps a lot because you know that the material is not lost. You must either repair the computer first or move the hard disk to a working computer and backup to the other computer.

Could you take the hard disk out and attach it to another computer? If that's not an option then I suggest that you approach a decent technician for a price quotation. Tell him that you bring him the disk and all you want is a backup of your pictures. Shouldn't cost much.

Ok lets try this again.

Are you absolutely positive that the drive with the pictures on it is actually "D" drive?

Expand the drive under documents and settings (like the screen shot I am showing).
How many users?

Expand each user and then expand the desktop.
You will note that I have 3 users, even though I am the only user.
I have: All users. Logmeinremoteuser, and Paul
