SX70 -Unable to download todays photos from SD card

I've been taken photos daily, taking the SD card out, inserting in my desktop and viewing. Today the DCIM file which is separated in files by month did not find todays photos - last entry was yesterdays.

I attached the camera with SD card installed into the desktop via the USB cable. This only indicated files up to 3 months ago.

However, with the SD card in the camera I can view todays photos. I'm baffled. Probably something simple - but at times it seems, so am I.

Any help appreciated.

Please disregard. The solution came from within. I had recently manually added the monthly folder to the SD card  because the files did not automatically roll over to a new folder in December, so I created a new folder for December and mislabeled it, so todays photos were dumped into September for some reason. At least I retrieved the pics.
