Hi. A friend of mine was moving pictures from the internal sd of her phone to a external sd using Samsung's My Files app. But now they've seem to be gone, all that's left on the internal sd is some files she didn't move. However, on the external SD the folders (DCIM, Pictures, etc) are present but empty.

I can't seem to find the reason for those files to disappear. I saw in a post (http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s3/help/tried-to-photo..) that they could be in lost.dir folder. I have to check that out since I don't have the phone nearby, but I would like to get some suggestions for my problem.

I don't know if the files could be in the internal SD but hidden. The same way in the external SD. Or the worst case scenario, lost at all.

1. use a root file explorer like ES File Manager (free) and show all hidden files/folders
2. i think your friend didnīt copy the pictures, but delete them (worst case), so they arenīt there anymore.

Good luck
