Have you ever verified files through Windows Explorer or another browser window after seeing files saved from the memory card? The software used there may be presenting you with false images of files in directories when none were actually saved to the hard drive.
Once you go back to look at some.... what happened? where are they? I seen that before on very few occasions where you see a ghost when the files haven't actually been copied or saved to the drive. The folders you or the program creates are still there while the files never were.
I dont have any type of program that is designed to hide or encrypt files installed. I know the files where there when I copied them because I saw the progress bar come up showing that the files were being copied, the activity light on my camera was flashing, and Picasa was able to find and recognize the pictures after they were copied to my hard drive.
To further provide proof that they were there, after I noticed the files were gone, I opened Picasa and Picasa originally showed thumbnails of the pictures in the folder they were supposed to be in, then Picasa rescanned my hard drive and the pictures disappeared. This proved that Picasa at one time saw the pictures, and then when I opened the program after they were gone, the program could not find them anywhere on the hard drive so it deleted the thumbnails from its memory.
