Default [Q] Lost pictures and stuff when moved to SD Card

So the other day I moved some pictures and other stuff to my SD card to make some room on my phone. Well I lost all of the pics. I made a folder and the folder is there but nothing is in it. I assume I will never get the pictures back but why is this? I had a ton of pictures, some I don't care about the others I do.

Any way to hopefully get them back? I didn't delete them, simply moved them. At least that is what I thought. What can I do to not let this happen again?

Have you tried viewing the SD Card on the PC ? Also for next time, there are several options. You can backup your pictures to Cloud storage, or simply copy them to your Laptop / Desktop. Some work via WiFi so you do not even have to hook up to USB.

If I had a dollar for every time I said that, I'd be making money in a very weird way.
