I imported pictures from my sd card and they went to watched files...I selected delete pictures from sd card, but cannot find my pictures. I did see them in the watched files. When prompted I selected to add the pictures to my catalog, but they are now nowhere to be found. I did a search with dates, nothing. Where could they be? D. Waters

Check your Auto-Import settings to see where the destination was set:

Thanks, Jeffery. The file was not there or anywhere, but I was able to recover the photos from my SD Card at the local photo shop in town. Some of the files were corrupted and so the file was not saved anywhere.

I do appreciate the speedy reply. Happy Holiday!
