Can you remember the name of one of them or the file extension type and do a system search with *. before the extension

This will bring up all files of this type and you may have a very long list to go through depending on the type but you will find them eventually

Although not very helpful they should have restored to their original location. I am guessing that if they are photo's then thy would be jpgs so I would suggest searching with *.jpg

One of the best progs I know for finding and indexing/cataloging photos is Picasa 2 from Google which is a free download - perhaps worth trying this? :?

No it doesnt tell you where its restoring them to it will just restore to where they were deleted from

Where did you keep all of your images as this is where they will be restored to, was it in the
"my pictures" folder ?

Are you absolutely sure that restore was clicked and not delete as that would explain why you cant find them anywhere

If your sure they were not deleted then as suggested download and run Picasa 2 or any other similar cataloguing app and this will list all your images / files on your hard drive in the one place
