Hi. This one is tougher than it seems, so you get the full 500 points. There may not be an answer.
I had a hard drive crash, lost my "D" drive. The "C" drive (boot drive) remains. I lost a lot of pictures, only one picture is left... the wallpaper on my desktop. This picture was on the "D" drive when I set it (right click, set as wallpaper, full screen, in Compupic). I've looked virtually everywhere on my C drive, under the active administrator, but I can't find where the picture went/is.
Unfortuately, "regedit" won't work on this machine now, which may have lead me to the file.
I'd like to get the picture, of my kid, back since I won't do the recovery thing on the drive $$$ for many months. Any ideas on HOW TO FIND THIS MISSING PICTURE from a hard drive that doesn't exist anymore (and is disconnected)? It HAS to be somewhere on the C drive... doesn't it?
((P.S. already looked in Windows/web/wallpaper)). Searched for *.jpg and *.bmp in "Windows" and "Documents and Settings," doubt that it's there.
