Losing files when moving inside Bridge

Hi all.

Ive been organizing photos into folders on my SD cards and then moving them into a specific folder on my portable HDD. Earlier today I was unable to paste the folders onto the hard drive. I had recieved an error 50 or something. Inside bridge I had the option to move to the destination folder but the files never arrived in the destination. After lots of searching both with Bridge and my macbook, I havent been able to find these photos. Are they really gone for good? They must go somewhere. They disappear from the source location and never arrived at the destination folder. Please help! I want my photos back!

Thanks

Dylan

It's NEVER a good idea to do anything on SD cards but to collect the images as you take them and then move them over to your hard drive for any organization/adjustments/etc. What you are/were doing is not a good practice.

 

You might try erasing/deleting the cache for that folder (on the SD card, that might help). If that doesn't work you might try some recovery software to retrieve your images. I wish I could offer more of a suggestion.
