I had several pictures in 3 different albums and was adding to them periodically. The albums disappeared and I can not figure why. Anybody ever have this happen.

Hi Dale,

Albums certainly should not just disappear – but with computers anything is possible!

Let's look a little deeper …

First, are you referring to 'Albums' – with the blue folder icon in Picasa on your computer? 

OR

Do you mean 'Web Albums' that are online?

Second, Are the pictures still there in their respective folders?

Thank you MrsGeek,

    This is the Albums in the Picasa blue folder. I have never used 'Web Albums'.

  All pictures appear to be in respective folders.

OK, so, it sounds like your pictures are there – but you may need to recreate your albums.

If you searched the users forum, you probably found the information about what folders to restore to get your albums back …

the Picasa2Albums folder.  If you do regular computer backups, you should have those folders.  See this article of mine for more detail:

It's mostly about the special Face albums, but it discusses regular albums as well.

Let us know.
