Loss of picture files only from external harddrive

  robhawk 16:46 01 Dec 2010

I keep ALL my pictures on an external hard drive and have done for a couple of years. It's a Freecom hard drive which has a total capacity of about 250GB. It's partitioned into two halves with video on one half. On the other half there is backed up data plus about 50GB of pictures.

I've just lost all the pictures. It looks like a disaster. Bizarrely all the data files are still there. Surely the pictures cannot have gone completely? Has anyone ideas on picture recovery please?

I use a newish PC with Windows 7 Home Premium.
