Emptied my recycle bin and inadvertently got rid of some photos by mistake.  Downloaded a programme to find them but it didn't work :upset:

yes

just pick an earlier time as vulc says just try and keep it as recent as possible as this restores the machine completely to how it was on that date ...... if you restore it any earlier you may loose any programs you had installed ...simples

If

system restore doesn't work maybe this might - Undela

If that doesn't help try a search on the web for other free recovery programs.

a

system restore may actually fuck it for you.


I would try a different recovery program first.

Reason being that whilst the file's existence will have been removed from the file allocation table, the actual bits and bytes that make it up should still be there. Problem being I think the recycle bin is compressed which makes recovery very hard. If you do a system restore, it'll possibly write over those bits and bytes that remain of the file and usually system restore won't affect documents.
