A technical question.

Posted on April 18, 2016 at 20:45 2 Comments

Today, I found one of my albums ('Festive Headgear') empty...   (I restored it in the meantime).  Can anyone explain to me, what could have happened?  I presume that I did something yesterday, with that result, but what?...

Thanks in advance.  With kind regards to all, Jean-Marie.
