Windows 10: Photo folders are mixed up

    Photo folders are mixed up


    I have just copied some photos from my old laptop onto my new one which has windows 10. The photos were sorted into folders called 'boat', 'pets', 'family', 'trees', 'for printing' etc each containing photos taken on more than one occasion. Now on my new laptop they are sorted into date folders and all my photos are mixed up.
    How do I get my folders back and how do I make sure this doesn't happen next time I copy photos across?

    What picture viewer are you using? Please send us a screenshot. To do that, press "PrintScrn" on your keyboard, then go to paint, and press Cntrl+v. Then save as a png file and upload it here

    Are you sure the folder names on your usb are the names you said?
    Try making a folder on you desktop then moving the pictures off the USB into that folder.
    Also, what kind of thumbdrive/USB/etc are you using? Kingston?
