Photo bucket issue/ has removed photos from all my prior posts.
« on: January 16, 2017, 01:14:07 PM »
hello Folks,
 I was on Photobucket and was updating my privacy settings  and I hit the scramble file names option and I see it is removing all my photos from my prior posts. is there anything I can do to restore those photos??
 
    Thanks in advance.

Contact Photobucket? I hope you have back up copies, always have copies.
Drive it like it's a rental.

your links to pictures contain the file name and path.  By scrambling the file name, it renamed those files, which is fine in photo bucket itself, but outside of photo bucket, any links were not changed and cant be because they are out of their control,  and still point to those old names.  That being the case, the link is pointing to a place that does not exist.  Only thing you can really hope for as an easy fix would be to contact them and ask if they can undo that rename.
