I have 2 suggestions:
1) Check you bash history
This can be done by opening the file
~/.bash_history with e.g. Gedit (or any other text editor you prefer) and searching for the command
scp so as to see where you chose to save those files.
2) Find your files with a search utility
If the 1st suggestion doesn't work because you use very frequently the terminal and so these entries have been overwritten I would suggest either using the command
find or the command
locate. In any case, you have to remember the filenames of the files, or at least part of them.
I know the
locate command better myself and I find it quicker, so I will describe on how to do it using it.
First of all, open a terminal by hitting
Ctrl+Alt+T and type in:
and then give
thecharactersIknow is the part of the filename that you remember. For example, if you remember
hi_there while the real filename is
hello_hi_there.jpg, then you should give
Also, if you are sure that the files are stored under your home directory, you can filter your results, like this:
locate *hi_there* | grep $USER
