Re: recovery of deleted photographs

Files (like pictures) aren't stored in the registry. So that's surely not the place to go.

The longer ago they were deleted, the less likely you'll be able to get them back. Unless, of course, you deleted them to the recycle bin; then they are still there.

Google XP UNDELETE and see if any of the freeware or shareware programs found there can find something. I shouldn't count on it. That's why it makes sense to have a backup of things you don't want to lose. Don't you have one?

Use Your Backup CD... They're NOT In The Registry

Making a backup copy of all our important files is extremely important.. If you've got those pics backed up, simply copy them from the backup to the computter.

Unfortunately, I'll guess that's not the case here.. Depending on how long ago "pas deleted" means, you may or may not be able to recover the files with out using a professional recovery company.. Still, if you delete the files yesterday and haven't been using the computer much, you might try the programs below:

PC Inspector File Recovery for FAT32 and NTFS

FILERECOVERY? for Windows?

Recuva File Recovery

Hope this helps.

(NT) Is it possible they're still in the RECYCLE BIN ?
