Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, I look forward to assisting you today. Have you searched your entire hard drive for the photo files?
Okay. First make sure you start at the root level of the hard drive. That would look something like C: Local Disk in Windows Explorer. In the search field of Windows Explorer type in *.jpg and see what all it finds. If you don't get the desired results, try *.jpeg next. Let me know.
No problem. You can get back to me when time permits.
Let me know how you would like to proceed.
You are correct. Your photos may also have a jpeg extension as well. Videos could have an extension of mp3. All of this depends on how you were shooting at the time. Check your camera since you will most likely have it set now as you did for all of your photos. If you give me the make and model of the camera, I may be able to help you figure out what to search for.
Okay, I will do some checking and let you know.
Okay the photos, if you haven't already figured it out, will have a .jpeg extension. The video files will have a .mov extension. These are the files you will need to search for.
In the search field you want to do what is called a wild card search. Type *.jpeg. That will search for every file with that extension, and it is best to start right at the root of the C drive.
That is why you want to search the root of the hard drive. The files could be anywhere?
