accidentally deleted pictures

while on a cruise i took about 200 pictures. I was looking through them and deleting some because they were bad pictures. While i was doing this i accidentally hit erase all instead of just erase. Is there a way to get back the erased pictures?

Hit erase on what? The camera, the computer, ???

If you are talking about a camera memory card, take it out of the camera and don't use it. Find a camera store that can recover the images from the card.

Bob, interesting site.
I was going to suggest
Kiddpeat had good advise and not to use the card at all once this happens.
I had my card completely restored and all images using ImageRecall.
In my case I did not delete all. I went to reformat the card which is even worse.
Whatever method this person chooses. Do not use the card at all!!! Important not to take another picture shot.
If you do, all is gone.
Use one of the methods suggested here.

Happens all the time unfortunately. Even for me, darn it!
Live and learn.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
