    My wordpress site has decided to not show allot of my images. I attempted a backup and ever since then the images come up as broken and i do not know how to get them back as i cannot find them anywhere in my media file.

    Can anyone assist me with this issue.

    Thanks

    You should find the URL of the broken image.

    Usually, images are stored in website.com/wp-content/uploads/<images here>

    Wordpress automatically creates multiple sizes for uploaded images (default: thumbnail / medium / large/ original)

    If you find the URL, you can look through your folder. Maybe it's renamed? Maybe deleted? I don't know.

    I've seen this before, but it was because the person was using copyrighted images from another site.

    If your site is hosted on a US based servers, and all or some of the images disappear, your hosting company has the option to remove images that the original image owner can prove copyright to. But it won't "just happen", most hosting companies will contact you about it and give you 24 hours or so to remove the offending images. If you don't comply or answer, they can and do have the right to do so.

    If you're hot linking to images expect this to happen a lot. If and when you got link to someone's images, you're forcing the other site to pay for bandwidth while you get the use of the image. When users find their images being linked to by other sites, they usually install a script to rename them, so you can't do it.
