Bill – you use the word “folders” so I assume you mean on your computer. Picasa stored photos locally on your computer – there was no synchronizing with the web – so, if folders are empty it means they got deleted from your computer. Picasa can’t do that by itself, neither can Google Photos. Have you checked your recycle bin?
