I hope you can get everything or at least a partial recovery. Take your pc to a good shop and have them see what can be recovered. Good luck.

I keep all my Scrapgirls stuff together, in folders by Kits, Brushes, Templates, Styles, etc. Under Kits, I have a folder for each collection. I pretty much let Picasa use its own search engine to find things for me ("staple" for example or "pink ribbon".) The one thing I do try to tag pretty regularly is full sheets of paper - sometimes "paper" includes too many items for what I am looking for. I label them "justpaper" as I unzip the kits when they show up in the Recently Added window. (My non-SG stuff is in a folder Misc Designers and I only wish it was as well organized lol.)
Then when I have time, I go through and look for ribbons or holidays that may not be obvious from the file name and tag those. So if I search for Christmas stuff, Xcelsius Deus comes up even though Christmas is not in the file name.
I think the free starter book in the freebies also has organizing help! And there is at least one thread about Picasa here too! Good luck!
