Recover Deleted Pictures

Q: Recover Deleted Pictures

Hi All,
I accidentally lost all the pictures from my desktop and I am unable to recover them. This is what happened;
1. Created a folder under C: and gave it a name
2. I cut photos from the SD card and pasted them in to this new folder
3. Disconnected the SD card and removed it from the slot
4. I was then in the process of copying a movie file from the harddisk to a pen drive and that was when my 1 year old (whom I was carrying while doing the copy) banged on the laptop keyboard
5. The movie file got deleted from the folder and I couldn't find it in recycle bin too
6. Then I started doing "REDO" until I got the movie file back
7. Only to realize that the photos I previously copied were not there anymore in the new folder I created and the folder's name had changed back to "New Folder" (Basically the Folder name and the copy of the photos operation was undone :( )
I have tried a few recovery softwares both on the SD card and harddisk but no luck :( I lost around 200 photos and invaluable memories of a family trip

Any kind of help would be really appreciated

Thanks in advance,
Raghu

Preferred Solution: Recover Deleted Pictures

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

A: Recover Deleted Pictures

Hi Raghu,


Please understand that it is hard for us to retrieve deleted files.

However, I would like to provide the following suggestions for test:

Suggestion 1 System Restore
===================
1. Before you start, please close all open files and close all open programs.
2. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools and click System Restore.
3. Select "Choose a different restore point" and click Next.
4. From the restore points available, select an appropriate restore point when your system was working correctly and click "Next".
5. Click Finish and System Restore will restart the computer to apply these changes.

After restarting, check whether your system functions correctly now. If not, you can undo your last restoration or select another restore point in the System Restore user interface.

Note: System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It also can make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files on your computer.
It does not affect personal files, such as e mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file.

Suggestion 2 Restore to Previous Versions
===========================
1. Right-click the folder that contains the photos you deleted and click Properties.
2. On the Previous Versions tab, choose a folder before you deleted the photos and click Restore.

If the pictures still could not be found, you may need to use third party
data recovery tool or contact a data recovery company to recover these photos.

Hope this helps.Vincent Wang

Hello! Let's see if you can help me with this: I reinstalled Vista on a laptop because it was evident that Vista was acting weird. I didn't format the hard drive, I just reinstalled and I know that there is a file called "windows old". I didn't get to see what was inside the file because the computer owner was in a hurry. She is a coworker, friend of mine and now says that the real owner, her son, is now mad at her because his pictures and documents are gone. Can I call her and tell her that those pictures and documents are still inside the laptop? Will I be able to recover them? Please let me know, so I can call her and take the laptop away from her son without wasting my time. Thanks!

I am on a vista operating system and recently lost some of my pictures. I was going to burn pictures from "my pictures" onto a DVD+RW, so I put my blank DVD in and I moved my pictures from "my pictures" into the blank folder. I fell asleep for an hour and the computer went into sleep mode. When I came back, I turned the computer on and it told me I needed to reformat my DVD. I did and lost all the files that I had dragged onto the blank "to burn" folder.

Hello all,

I am wondering if anyone can help with a bit of a nightmare situation I am having?

I went to upload a picture yesterday and when doing so realised all of my pictures had gone. There were stored in the usual My Pictures folder and was around 15GB of pictures from the last 10 years (our wedding, honeymoon, holidays, family evens etc), obviously now I cannot find this I am beginning to panic a little.

So far I have tried a programme called Recuva (which seemed to find loads of images (1.2 million infact) but not one of them being from this folder) and Shadow Explorer which seems a bit more difficult to use and the folder always looks empty.

I use Avast! antivirus and run Windows 7, being the idiot I am I have no backup setup. Is there anything I can try?

Thanks in advance for any help!

So to sum it all up I have taken some pictures with my sony ericsson phone, and they show up as 0bytes. I transfer them into the computer and I still cant view them. I see the default windows gallery thumbnail and i get the message ''cant display image because it is an empty file''.
I am sure the pictures did save in the mobile though, because there was enough memory. When trying to open them on the mobile itself i get the message ''too big to display'' (!).

Pictures are saved in the memory card.

Having said the above, I need a recovery programme to get to see these pictures. So far I have tried some: Card Recovery'' managed to find one of the pictures, and i can see its thumbnail just fine, but i need to get back all of the pictures! Since it worked with one, there must be another program that works!

Image Rescue 4 appears to find the thumbnails but they are empty, theres a ''recover'' option but its only available if you buy the product. I dont know if its gonna work, I would risk it, if i get positive suggestions (if you know about the programme).

Please guys I have been trying to resolve this the last few days and I really need to! Suggest a really good program, i dont mind buying it as long as it does the job.

No way,if it has been that long unless the PC has not been used. And then it still may only get some of the files back.

Best to have a recovery program on your PC and use it right away because once something is deleted something else will get writen to the space.

Well, my husband installed an addition 100 GB hard drive. It was working just fine, but when I rebooted after windows update, It WOULD NOT boot. It would go to the dell screen, then go blank and say "Strike F1 to retry or F2 to go to boot menu". Finally I had to disconnect the new drive, then change the jumpers on the original drive to master (no slave). FINALLY I got it to boot using the original XP disk I have. I lost everything though. I managed to somehow recover all the old pictures and media I had lost last time it crashed. LOL. Anyway, I need to know how I can go about recovering the pictures and music from the other hard drive.

My friend took my digital camera (Cannon SC 650) and accidentally hit the option for "low level format" on her SD card and deleted all my pictures! Is there any way I can recover them?

My friends tried using a "recovery program" with the SD card and SD card reader, but no luck. Any ideas would be very appreciated!!!

-TKD
 

A:Help - Recover Formatted Digital Camera Pictures??

Does your Canon really do a low level format? Most cameras only do quick format. On a PC, I think XP only does a quick format on memory cards, even though there is a box to click for a full format.

With a quick format, the picture data isn't erased from memory. Only a header info telling where it was located gets erased. As long as nothing gets written into the locations, the file can be potentially recovered.

I just formatted a 256 MB SD card in both a Minolta camera and on my PC and in either case, recovery software was pulling out pictures from as far back as two years ago. I used PC Inspector Smart Recovery, version 4.5, by Convar, run using a card reader.

Anyway, good luck.

Hello,

I have a major problem. Because my laptop was having problems involving the 'blue screen of death', I chose to backup my files to an external portable harddrive before reformatting the entire drive.

However, when opening the backup folder, I discovered that my art folder, located in the 'PUBLIC PICTURES' folder was not to be found.

What is the BEST method to recover the files from the 'PUBLIC PICTURES' folder? I had almost 5GIGS worth of pictures.

I KNOW there is a way to recover the files, but not sure if they will even be located in the Public Pictures folder. Is it possible that after reformatting, Windows 7 relocated the contents of the 'Public Pictures' folder to another place on the drive?

Is it possible to restore the folder to previous versions AFTER reformatting the drive?

If not I do not think you can get it back.

If you are then do the following:

Highlight the deleted items folder. Click Tools>recover deleted items. Alist of emails should appear. Find your email and highlight it. Right click and choose restore or click the restore button. It should return to your deleted items folder.

I got to the point on the install where it highlighted the good partition and I hit "L" to erase it. At that point I stopped and tried a repair from the XP Home disk but no luck. Since it didn't overwrite it (probably just erased some pointers) is there any way to get back the good partition/OS that was on this disk?

How and what did you delete? I don't know of a stand alone power management program. You can access your power options in the control panel, in XP anyways not positive with Vista. Whether Lenovo has one you'll have to read your owner's manual. Have you emptied the trash bin? If it's still in there, restore it back

A:Recover deleted files

It's possible the filles may still be there. First try to undelete in your recycle bin. If that's a no go, there are a few commercial recovery programs out there. The only way you can possibily undelete files that have already been deleted in the recycle bin is using such a program provided the files have not been overwritten. If you write something to the same disk it doesn't necessarily mean your deleted files have been overwritten.
If a file recovery program doesn't work, they're gone forever.

I need to recover deleted IE history and have scoured all different sources for recovery and im starting to doubt whether or not it is possible.

What I know wont work:

System Restore- The history was deleted between restore points, and the restore points on either side of it being deleted dont have the relevant history

What I've tried:

Index.dat readers. This is what I'm confused about, everywhere I go say this file holds all IE history unless its been altered, but from everything I've actually tried it seems all the index files I can find just hold information I can pretty readily access already.

So I'm willing to try any suggestions, and also if anyone has a little more info on index.dat that would change what I've found out myself it would also be greatly appreciated.

What I know wont work:

System Restore- The history was deleted between restore points, and the restore points on either side of it being deleted dont have the relevant history

You might try a program called Recuva from Piriform.. But I'm not sure if it will find deleted IE history temp files. Did you delete them from a cleaner program or from IE itself?

Hi all,

I was doing an assignment using Word for Mac 2011, and without realising it deleted a section of text. I continued to work on it all evening, so had made multiple saves, before I realised the content was missing. I had mixed answers from googling, but no joy so far, so not sure if anything can be done. Does anyone one know if I have any hope of recovering it, or a previous version of the file?
Also time machine was not on....

Thanks

Hi,

I've done a stupid stupid stupid thing and lost an important excel spreadsheet that I last used about two weeks ago. I've been having various performance problems (freezes/crashes) and was advised to run "Malwarebytes' anti-malware".

Before I did this, I backed up all my data to a CD-ROM and then deleted the files from my laptop. Then I went ahead and ran the software. The good news: my laptop seems to be behaving itself far better now. The bad news: somehow I seem to have missed this one file when backing up. I've got all my family photos, lots of stuff from work, even old stuff that I'll probably never need again but I thought "What the heck". Yet somehow, I've missed this one spreadsheet. I could kick myself!!

To make matters (probably) worse, I've run CCleaner a couple of times since then, as I was advised that it keeps the laptop clean. I've just looked at some settings there now and it's using "Normal" file deletion as opposed to "Secure", but "Wipe Free Space" is selected. Damn!

I only realised I'd lost the file last night and I have already downloaded some freeware utilities such as "Restoration" and "Undelete Plus", but none of these found the file.

Should I just give up now? Or is there some software that may find a file even after CCleaner has been run.

Grateful for any help.

Pat

I found a great website yesterday, however, i forgot to bookmark it.

I have ccleaner auto-run at startup and therefore the website is no longer in my history. Is there any way to recover it from my computer?

A:Recover Deleted History

You could try recovery software but it's success depends on how much data has been written to the drive (either by you or by Windows & applications) since the deletion.
Try one of these: Free data Recovery Software Roundup! (All freeware data recovery tools.)

I uninstalled atheros from my computer by accident and now i cannot connect wirelessly to the internet. I Have a Cisco Linksys router. I popped in the disk to restart it but now its sayin something is wrong with my ethernet cord but my other laptop is working fine on it. Please Help! Thanks in advance!
 

A:Deleted Atheros..How can i recover it

Download the wireless driver from the laptop manufacturer. The Linksys router has nothing to do with this issue.
