    Retrieving data


    O M G.... I accidently deleted 10 days (100 pictures on each day) of my graves for Find a Grave. Here is what I did.
    I upload them from my cameras to a program called Image Browser EX (Canon). I had over 3000 tombstones. So I deleted them thinking it would only delete it from there and NOT my pictures folder!!! They are all gone. 10 days of heard work.

    Then I emptied the trash.

    Ugh. Is there any way I can retrieve these photos?

    I got it. Thanks. I wasn't able to get them all back but most of them. That program works good.

    Great news. As long as you got most of them back is what counts.

    For those that were damaged there is no other way to repair, that particular sector where they were stored has be overridden by the computer functions.
