Lost Pictures
« on: December 24, 2019, 11:20:28 am »
I have copied my pictures from Windows 7 over to Mint 19.2 Cinnamon and checked that they were there OK, The next time I tried to access a picture I got this message:
The Link "My Pictures is Broken". Move it to the Rubbish Bin?
This Link cannot be used, because its target "media/*********/BC286EEC286EA55C/Users/******/Pictures" doesn't exist.

Please advise how to re-establish the link, or should I copy the pictures again?

It looks like you didn't copy the pictures themselves across, instead you just created symlinks ('shortcuts' in Windows parlance) to them .. so when you removed the originating drive the symlinks/shortcuts no longer worked.

Yeah, copy them across again, but this time highlight them, then right-click and select 'Copy' .. then go to the folder you want to copy them into, right-click and select 'Paste'.

Photorec is a splendid app, it recovers more than pictures, its found files on my drives which I thought had long gone, give it a try should you need to recover files.
