Hello Janet! Thank you for your question. I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Did you also lose other things, like documents? Do you have backup? When you upgraded to windows 8, did it give you the option to back up / save your data/ files? And/or did it give you a warning that all your data will be wiped out?

Can you please click on the website below, then click on Join session, then allow the Elsinore / ScreenConnect remote program to run, then we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly:

Sorry, you should have checked the photos in your memory stick before upgrading to windows 8. By the way, did you upgrade to windows 8 or windows 8.1?

When you upgraded to windows 8, did it give you the option to back up / save your data/ files? And/or did it give you a warning that all your data will be wiped out?

 

Open Computer, then C: drive, then folder Windows.old if it's there, then see if you see your files/photos there.


If it does not connect / join, can you please go to that website in Internet Explorer (the big 'e' program icon), not Firefox or Chrome, etc.?
