Not understanding the move to Revel

The Adobe Revel came as a shock to me. If I gave permission to Adobe to MOVE (not copy) my photos I did it inadvertently, not consciously. Is there a way of re-instating the pictures back to their original storage in my hard disk? One other question in my mind is: how did you manage to pass through two firewalls and the anti-virus softwaere to access my files? It looks like you could access any of my files if you wanted to. Please let me know so that I can improve the security of my computer.
Thanx for a reply, Nick Kydonieus

Your files were already uploaded to

Revel didn't do anything with the files on your hard disk - which remain exactly where you put them. Only the files that were on were moved over to, and nothing was changed on your local system.

I'm sorry this came as a surprise. Did you have adobe emails going to spam? Did you change your email? Emails were sent out to users explaining that was about to be discontinued, and informing users that their files would be migrated to Revel unless they opted out. This was done as a courtesy so that users could have a means of saving all their photos (jpg) on the cloud for viewing and sharing without having to go to the effort of archiving and re-uploading. Additional emails went out closer to the time. The opt out period has ended and we are in the transition period actively migrating photos to Revel. First they are copied to Revel, then the account will be deleted 6/18.

As Chris said. This only affects your jpg files. The migration does not touch any files or have access to the files your hard drive.

Thank you! There is only one thing I do not understand but I 'm trying to solve: In the summer of 2011 I took a three month trip to west USA and amassed about 38,000 pictures. On coming home I "moved" the pictures into a folder "Photos\Original\2011" and used my elements 7 to select and enhance my better pictures. I placed the resulting jpg's into folder "Photos\Modified\2011". The latter folder is now completely empty and I dont have the slightest idea of what happened to them. The good thing is that the original un-enhanced jpg's are still in their folder.

Thanks again for your response,
