If you have unfortunately lost all of your photos on your hard drive, but those photos are stored on Fotki, it is possible to download them back to your computer from fotki.com with the folder structure created there.

For that purpose, you can use any FTP client (FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol). fotki.com supports both uploading and downloading photos via FTP.

To connect to fotki.com, use the following host name: ftp.fotki.com. Your UserName and password are the same you use when logging into your Fotki account. Once you login via FTP client, you will see folders which mimic the folder structure of your "Photo Albums" page.
