Not possible, BYE/BYN does not delete images!  Do not try to interpret the log files without understanding the inner working of the software... it will drive your nuts :) and will lead to false diagnostic as it just did.

BYE/BYN transfers images from the TEMP folder to your final download folder as specified in the settings dialog once it is done creating them.  Look in that folder and your images should be there.  The default download folder is "My Pictures\BackyardEOS" 

Also, please make sure the option in BYE for "Save To"  is set to "Save to PC"... this is the default but you may have changed it without realizing it... this setting is in the capture plan area.

Keep us posted,

BYN downloads the images from the camera into a temporary folder, processes them, copies the processed image to its final location and then deletes the downloaded image. The software works and no other users are reporting this error. Are you sure that you are looking in the correct file folder?

The final folder is designated by the value that you enter in the Download folder field on the Settings dialog. The image may be in a subfolder based on your choice from the Sub-folders dropdown list.

The temporary location is specified by the entry in the BackyardTEMP folder. I believe that the downloaded images in the BackyardTEMP folder are not deleted until BYN has verified that the modified and renamed image is in the designated download folder.

I knew it was a setting, i hope no one thought i was saying the program did not work. So i had it on PC, had the right folder, by chance I added a name in target name and voila! Now i have files in the folder on the PC and camera cards. I just was not satisfying the naming convention. Thanks for the pointers, it got me to thg he right place.....now for a clear sky...

No worries.  Glad you got it to work.
