On another post you said "Yes after upgrade it looks to me like you ran the 486 upgrade script step3 more than once and then you ran a scan database for missing thumbs which was not something you wanted to do as you have deleted your photo entries
To get your photo's back you need to restore a backup of your photos table and rerun the upgrades from your last version making sure to only run the step mentioned once."
I think this is my problem as well anything I can do if I dont have a backup of that table. I backed up the whole dir of the site and forgot to backup the DB. Am I screwed?
