before i have 4 folders in my memory card name: Images, Video clips songs and movies then i try to save all my pictures in my memory card to my computer so i connect my card reader to my computer and i try to restart my computer but i forgot to click the SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE..
then after i restart my computer i see some msg like this show in my monitor

[CODE]Checking file system on E: The type of the file system is FAT.
One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue.
Windows will now check the disk. Volume Serial Number is 0A34-16CA
Unrecoverable error in folder \Documents\divers. Convert folder to file (Y/N)? Yes Convert lost chains to files (Y/N)? Yes 705036288 bytes in 43 recovered files. Windows has made corrections to the file system.[/CODE]

but i dont click anything i dont click Y OR N but my computer automatic go to my desktop and after that i go to My Computer to check my files in my memory card then i dont know what happen why the Images and Video clips folder automatic changed to FILE type..
i try to open that files but i cannot open the file when i click open this msg show in my screen: (Open With: Choose the program you want to open this file)

i save all my pictures in the Image folder i think i have 400 pictures in images folder and 30 videos in my Video clips folder but after my folder changed to FILE type i dont know why the FILE type have only 32.0 kb size..

My question now is, how to restore this file to back the original folder??

i try to search and i found some software can restore and back all the pictures mp3 or files deleted from memory card or computer but my question is my files are not deleted or remove i have copy of my files 1 in my memory card and 1 in my computer im not delete my files so for me why i restore my files if my files is still in my memory card and in my computer so what if i try to delete my files? and try to restore them yes i know i can restore my FILE type but i think i will got the same result yes the FILE type will back but the problem is not in the FOLDER FORMAT so i cant open again that files to save my pictures..

i have question any program or tips or tutorials how to back the FILE type to the folder because my folder changed to FILE type so i think if i back the FILE type to the folder i can back my pictures so anyone know how to do that or what software can i use to restore my files..
