The folders aren't hidden are they, when in a folder go to tools > folder options > view > make sure show hidden folders is checked.

Can you not search for .jpg?
I presume that is the file format you will have used.

hmmm..maybe they were messed up when your G.C went or maybe its something to do with the sharing have you tried right clicking the drive and looking at the properties then sharing other than that im stumped

Was the drive partitioned? If yes, can you still access all the partitions?

Shouldn't normally need to transfer ownership in most cases.

why did i have to?

CAn't say for sure without seeing it, but if you needed to take ownership you'd have got a pop up telling you, if you didn't then it was just a coincidence that you took ownership and found the files at the same time.Another possible reason is you have XP Pro (maybe vista/7) and had told it to keep the files private, that can do it aswell. Vista can be a bit random and apply it to folders too, but either way it should have popped up telling you, if it didn't it's a coincidence.


i have xp pro
