Locating lost picture file on my HDD

I'm trying to locate a picture file I was working with some years ago and now I can't find it. I don't remember intentionally saving it anywhere on my computer, but I could have, just not sure.

Is there any way to do a search of all the picture files on my PC hard drive and display all the results? It might take scanning through thousands of pictures, but at this point that's the only way I can imagine finding it, if it's on my HDD at all.

Hi @Toonces,
Welcome to CF.

In this situation I would probably start with a Recuva scan:

It should be able to produce a list of all images on the drive, then it will be a case of flicking through the resulting images.
