    Help Needed: My Photos I copy- pasted from iphone are deleted


    I did following steps in windows 10.

    Opened my iphone pictures folders, copied them (Control +X ).

    Opened Pictures folder in windows 10 (there were already two folders Saved Pictures and Camera Roll). I created 'New Folder' inside 'pictures'. I pasted all those pictures (Control + V).

    Somehow I clicked 'Back' button on the top left of the window. Tried to look into the pictures, there was no 'New Folder' at all. Only two folders were those default one.

    Where did it go? Someone please help!!

    It's probably too late now but another Ctrl+V might have been able to paste them again.

    Using Ctrl+X is actually cut not copy so if the original paste worked it would have removed all the pictures from the original location. However, if the paste failed, they might still be there. Ctrl+C is the copy shortcut.

    I would do a search for *.jpg files and specify the date range for the ones you copied and see if a windows search can find them if they have become pasted somewhere unexpected.

    Thanks philic.

    I could not find those pictures in any of the folders. Not sure I mistakenly deleted whole folder.



    When you get chance to copy and paste pictures from iPhone to windows 10, please share your experience. It is supposed to be very straight forward and easy process.

    iCloud is the big culprit. As long as they are in iCloud and you have your phone set to always sync them to iCloud. It will do as it is setup.

    Just open the folders in two tabs in File Explorer. One for iCloud folder and the other for the folder that you plan on using for offline use. If always online, I would leave it alone and not move anything. You can also go into your iCloud photo folder at iCloud
