Where are my photo located

I have an Acer Chromebook C720-2103. I changed out the motherboard and battery the other day. When I replaced everything it works fine without over heating as before but all of my photos and bookmarks are gone. Are they still on the old motherboard?

I still have the old parts. If I replace them will the photos still be there or are they gone for good?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The best way to know if your files are still retrievable is to try. On most computers, the permanent storage media is the hard drive that is a separate component from the motherboard. However, Chromebooks are built differently.

Chromebooks have a function where they automatically sync your data and back them up to Google Drive. This function can be turned on/off in the Chromebook’s settings. So, I would first access my Google Drive account and see if the photos aren’t there before undoing all that hard work by replacing the old motherboard.
