The disappearing files.

I have had a couple clients in the past month ask me the same question `What happened to my files? I went to transfer the files from my camera card to the computer and they disappeared!!”

I went and did a shoot, came back and inserted the card like I always do and went to transfer the images from the DCIM folder on the camera card to the computer. Went and helped a client then came back and found that the pictures were not in the destination folder or the original DCIM folder. Talk about a bad feeling. Ran a search on the computer and found them on the camera card but not in a folder.
