What is the "recylcler" folder?

I ran an AVG virus check, and noticed it was looking through a folder with the path C:\RECYCLERThere were about 10,000 jpg files in it, all with the prefix dsc(num).jpg yet any attempt to find this folder or any dsc*.jpg files proved fruitless.
I have all my system files showing, and my recycle bin did not have any files with that prefix.
Where are these files, and how can I view them?

Do you use a Nikon digital camera? If you do that is the file structure DSC#####.jpg refers to.

I'm not sure how to unlock the folder though, one of the other peeps may be able to help.

Yes, I have a Fuji finepix, but there's no way I have loaded 10,000 pictures, besides, fuji uses dscf, and these were dsc.

Look in the software in explorer that you use to edit look at download to. To find the files, or Make a note of one of the file Names and number and look in find files for the file

Thanks, done that already. I think, however, that I have sorted it out. I hadn't unhid all the system files, and it was on F: not C:

Thanks all
