I recently changed the...

I recently changed the settings on my camera so that photos are automatically deleted upon being imported. However, the file name I was trying to save my imports to this last time was too much like an existing file name. I accidentally closed the window, and now my photos are lost. How can I locate those?

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of the camera? And can you guesstimate how old it is?

This really is a guess, but I'm thinking the camera is about 12 yrs. old now. . .it may be even older. It is a FINEPIX J10 and the serial # is

Technician's Assistant: What happened right before this popped up? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Serial # 8UB15344

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the camera expert to know before I connect you?

I tried looking in my WINDOWS Picture Files, but I cannot find the imported photos anywhere

If you are certain that you've overwritten the previous images, you can probably recover what was on the camera if you haven't taken pictures with it since.
