In the future, don't use the Move function. Rather, use the Copy
function. Then once you are confident your backup is complete and
accurate and you want to free up space on your hard drive, *then* you
may delete the files that have been successfully copied.
Have you checked the Recycle Bin? If the files are there, you should be
able to restore them.
When you say "they all contain the exact same pictures," do you mean the
last thirty albums contain the same pictures found on the first ten
albums? Perhaps that's how it always was.
