Normally a scanner will save scanned images inside the "pictures" or "my pictures" folder. Look for a folder in there with a name like Scanner or Toolbox. They have got to be somewhere on your computer.
I think that I am not explaining myself well enough.
I scanned three batches of documents with the resultant files being output to C:\Documents and Settings\dogbreath\My Documents into three separate folders.
These files were then edited whilst still in those three folders in My Documents.
On completion of editing, I attempted to move the three folders simultaneously to E:\My Projects using the Edit>Move To A Folder function. After disappearing from C:\Documents and Settings\dogbreath\My Documents (as one would expect), they could not be found in E:\My Projects.
Searches (Start>Search) of C:\ & E:\ by file type (.jpeg), date, file/folder name, file/folder name contains the following text, etc. etc., all threw up a blank. Neither were they in the Recycle Bin.
