2 days ago I downloaded some video footage to my Dell Inspiron 6400 from a hand-held video camera. In Windows Live Photo Gallery, before the files were downloaded, I gave each set of clips a title based on the date they were taken and the clips could be found in "my pictures" in separate folders named after the date.
Today I did the same procedure using a different camera. Again, before downloading I named each batch according to the date they were taken.
When I then looked for these photos in "my pictures" I could only find folders for the ones I had downloaded today and not the ones from 2 days ago.
I was wondering if because I named today's pictures the same as the one's from 2 days ago (i.e. 25th August 2011), the new folder created for these has over-written the previous folder of the same name?
(At no point did I get a message telling me that a folder already exists of that name, which I sometimes get when saving files on my laptop.)
Is that possible and if so is there any way I can retrieve the old video files?
The video clips were/are of my daughter's first birthday so I'm desperate to get them back.
