Windows Photo Gallery won't find contents of Pictures folder
The gallery is empty and i can't add the pictures folder because it says
"this folder or one of its parent folders is a system folder, its recommended
that you move your pictures to the pictures folder or to anther folder." I
think the picture folder is for some reason not accessible by window's native
programs. I've checked the "shell folder" and "user shell folder" keys,
they're all correct. the only thing i can think of is restoring the original
registry entries that pertain to photo gallery. I'm not comfortable with this
issue so help would be great.

You Can contact me at RobertWHurst@Gmail.com with a solution. spammers
beware, don't send me garbage emails, i have ways at getting back at you, lol.

============================
It may be worth a try to rename or delete
the Photo Gallery Pictures.pd4 databbase.

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Local\Microsoft\
Windows Photo Gallery\Pictures.pd4

The file can also be found with an Advanced
Search for pd4.

Go to...Start / Search / Advanced Search.

Check the box..."Include non-indexed, hidden,
and system files" Enter pd4 in the Name field

Renaming or deleting the .pd4 file should
clean up your Photo Gallery.

Try renaming it... Pictures.OLD
If you are unhappy with the results...you can
try changing it back to Pictures.pd4.
