thanks for this, I just had a similar problem. ShadonExplorer really saved the day. Question... does anyone know why this happens and how to avoid it? I had just transferred some pictures using Picassa, and then it all disappeared... any idea?
Hmmm , did you mean ShadowExplorer.com - Downloads
As far as why it happens is anyones guess, if it happens all the time it is usually a hardware failure tho. The once in a while issues are hard to diagnose. I hate intermittent issues, hard to trouble shoot , as when you trouble shoot , everything shows good.. lol .
