Windows 7 and Xp Problem

By JCT21 ·
I was at an event all weekend and i put all my photos and videos on my freinds computer , i dont know the exact specs but its OS is windows 7.

My comp Has Windows Xp and i can provide the specs for mine if needed.

after the event was over i put all those photos and videos on my 32GB SD card and went home, Only to Learn everything for only Sunday, was There The folder that was supposed to be copyed that had everything was empty.

now i looked at the properties and it was marked read-only which had to have carryed over from my friends comp.

now heres my question if it was read-only on my freinds computer does that explain why its empty and if so would removing the read only get the photos and videos on my sd card?

Why you had any need at all to store anything on someone else's computer? Presumably you copied them onto the friend's computer FROM the SD card.

As to the 'Read Only' situation, that makes the folder effectively Write Protected so it couldn't have been transferred from your friend's computer because (it also being Read Only) you would have been denied access, particularly when you tried to copy stuff over on the first day.

I have never been a fan of any form of file management using the Drag&Drop principal - it is far too easy to click on CUT instead of COPY.

Have you checked with your friend in case they still have all your piccies and vids?
