If no luck with the above you should be able to export them back from Picasa.
Firstly make a new folder as the folder where you wish to keep them. Open Picasa, highlight the photos, select one then click edit- select all, then click file - export picture to folder. From there you will have to browse to your new folder and click OK.

Hope this helps, good luck.

If you have not cleared the Recycle Bin and the missing pictures are not there.

Then the most likely scenario is that you have accidentally dragged My Pictures into another Folder. That is the reason for suggesting doing a Search.

Although I have never lost My Pictures that way, I have done the same thing with any number of other Folders over the years. When I think about it I reckon that I do that about 3 or 4 times a year.

Go to Sesrch, and the field type

And just see them flooding in from all over in corners you did not know you had.
