    Deleted pictures

    Friend inadvertently deleted about 500 pictures and later emptied the Recycle Bin. Is there any hope of or way to recover them??

    Check this out Google Search: undelete files. Be aware, that the more that has been done on the PC since the deletion the less likely it is that any recovery will be possible. Be sure to point out to your friend the benefits of regular backups.

    Like Joe said, please tell him that EVERYTHING that has been done since will tend to mitigate the possibility of file recovery, but go here: PC INSPECTOR File Recovery and do it quickly.

    Thanx mucho for the advice but as was mentioned it appears that recovery efforts were too late. Ah Well - back to Switzerland to reshoot the oictures.

    As the father on Everybody Loves Raymond is wont to say sometimes: "Holy Crap!" I would have hoped that of 500 deleted photos, at least some would have been recoverable. Oh well, we tried...
