Exclamation Missing Folder

Hello, all. Long-time reader, first time poster. I have a stock GS3 and ran into a major issue last night. I was organizing my gallery and moving pictures to new folders. After I had finished moving the files I went to rename the folder but accidentally saved the name as "..." - now the folder has disappeared from my gallery and I cannot find it using the file manager. Can I find these pictures/is this folder somewhere on my phone? Important family photos that I do not want to lose! Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks!

If your phone is rooted use es file Explorer and click in settings show hidden folders. It may work without root
