Disappearing Pics

I attempted to transfer a folder, named ”My pictures”, from my downloads to my documents, I was informed that a folder by this name already existed in My documents, I went into my documents and renamed the folder ”My Pictures 2”,I then started the transfer again. Unfortunately I then found that the transfer had been successful but, my original picture folder had been deleted with all its contents.
Is it possible to recover the My Picture folder , If so how?. I am using xp home.
I do hope you can make sense, of my description of events.

If you have not done any thing else go to EDIT in Windows Explorer and choose Undo

System restore won't change data but it may be worth a try as renaming the folder may be recognised as a system change.
