I certainly did something wrong this time. I wanted to import my photos from an external backup drive. The photos were put on the drive from windows. I used the drop and drag onto the mac. So far so good--then all heck broke out. Mac did not import the folders-just the pictures from the folders. Yes, in the finder window under my files I had over 4500 files (picts). No folders telling what the picture is of and anything-just the numbers. I am just waiting to know what I did wrong, so that mess will never happen again? I know the info is scare, but I don't know what I did to go wrong. Also in trying to clean up this mess, I would move the picts into folders (I made) on the desktop. Some would move, while others copied. After moving them, I would try to delete them from the finder window and they would disappear from the specific desktop folder. All I want are the picts in specific folders on the desktop, and have the finder window show desktop and folders. Can anyone help? Thx.
