I accidentally deleted some pics I've been using for my listings from my HD the other day and I can't recover them. I do notice that they are still in sixbit. Is there a way I can extract the jpegs from sixbit to my HD? I'm guessing they're stored somewhere on my HD besides the originating folder they were uploaded from... i just can't figure it out.

This is a perfect question, for a forum.
When Sixbit management reads this (if they read this), please, please, please post the solution up here, instead of telling him to "open a ticket"

By default Sixbit stores the pictures in the database, but there is an option to store them in a folder on the hard drive.
Did you change the default location where the pictures are stored before this happened?

Nope didn't change any folder location preferences, but I did notice there are a couple of 4-5gb sixbit database files on my hardrive.

You can use the CSV export to pull the pictures from Sixbit whether you are using external picture storage or database storage.

From the User''s Guide CSV Export:
In addition to exporting the picture paths with the Pictures field, you can also export the pictures themselves by checking When exporting pictures create pictures files in: and then providing a path to put the exported pictures. The pictures will be named with the itemid of the item followed by a sequential number for each picture.

I think the OP was looking for the path.. and how to extract his pictures FROM his db and not into his db. additionally would be helpful to cite the paths for where both db storage and external picture storage would be located. The user's guide seems to tell you how to import to the db. (of course, I could be reading all of this wrong as it definitely above my pay grade!)
