Hello Lisa

Was this on Connect Vision or Connect Action? Could you give the steps you used?

It was in action. I was trying to upload an image to use as my avatar -- and so I clicked on my photo (the little wrench) hit the change photo...browsed for an image on my hard drive, selected it, and it started to load -- then, I decided not to use that photo, so I hit cancel....and went back to my hard drive to use a different one in that same folder and noticed it was gone. I searched my entire computer for the file name, and couldn't find anything....honestly, i wouldn't care (just a photo) - except this one is a group family photo that includes an uncle who is very ill...and go figure...its like the one nice picture of everyone! so, i'm hopeful i can recover it.

Hello Lisa
I can't be 100% sure, but I doubt whether there really is any code in Mindjet Action that is able to actually remove files from your hard disk. This would be very unusual behaviour for any web app. Have you looked in the recycle bin on your system?
