How to find a folder?

Asked by Kaya on 2009-06-07

I saved some pictures from my camera and made a folder for them. When I went to upload the photos to my facebook, the folder was not there? I made the folder about a month ago, and today when I added the new photos the folder disappeared.

sudo find / -name *.jpg > ~/result.txt; sudo find / -name *.JPG >> ~/result.txt; gedit ~/result.txt

will find all fines named jpg and JPG and output their names to result.txt then open it. You can then browse the file to find your data. The find command will search the entire system as it is starting from /

If the camera uses PNG then replace the searches accordingly.

Can you help with this problem?
