Photoshop 7.0 BRUSH question?

Question by Lovemyfamily: Photoshop 7.0 BRUSH question?
I am an artist and created lots of brushes in photoshop. I use them for leaves, lace patterns, all sorts of things. Well, I went to open up photoshop to get to work and they are ALL GONE!!! Can anyone tell me what could have happened and if there is any chance that I could find them somewhere on my pc? I will tell you my computer has not been updated and nothing has changed at all. I cannot figure out anything. One thing, I have had memory issues lately where only so many windows can be opened at one time, but thats it. The only other thing that was odd was when I opened photoshop, it asked me if I wanted to specificy any colors or customize my pallet or would I like to do it later. I have NEVER seen this before. I am always closing a little orangish colored window each timem I use it, but that is not what I am referring to. If anyone can help, I would be so appreciative!
Thought I should add that restarting my computer doesn’t make a difference. Nor does opening a specific illustration. These things are just GONE. The only brushes that are there are the ones that the program came with. I am so bummed…:(

Have you been saving your brushes in your actual drive, where you select folders?? If not, they might be lost forever. Here’s a link that explains it a little better. Sorry bout that 🙁 I know how hard it is to lose all that work. It happened to me more than once…sometimes we get too involved in the art process and forget to save. 🙁
