I hope somebody here can help me.

I have just been editing my graduation photos using Microsoft Office Picture Manager and was doing a bulk name change when the majority of files (about 70 of them) just disappeared. They are really important to me and I am frantic to find them!

I didn't press cut or delete, or at least I don't think I did. I tried pasting anyway to see if they were on the clipboard but they weren't.

They are not in the recycle bin. They have not moved to another folder. I had previsouly tagged them 'graduation' so looked under Windows Photo Gallery for all graduation tagged photos. They appeared briefly and I highlighted them and tried to copy them but an error message came up saying they couldn't be copied due to some kind of problem, then they simply disapeared. I saw the location that they had been saved, but they are not in this folder and I cannot now find them anywhere.

Please help me, they are so important to me, completely invaluable. I have never had this happen before and feel like something wierd has happened, I am hoping there is an explanation....

Have you tried doing a search for them? using the *.jpg, *.bmp, etc (or whatever the file extension is)?
Try a search for "graduation)?
