reading data after retrieving deleted files

  david-226599 21:06 16 Oct 2003

i accidently deleted my files. with the help of the forum I was able to retrieve them but even though they are photoshop images(tiffs) photoshop gives me the following error message:-could not open these files as they are not tiffs. But they are now and were before.The files are 18megabite in size as they were before deleting. When I veiw the cd,s I copied the files onto in "Disk Investigater"I see that (in the "DOS" list) the first letter is missing in the file name.I have been told this is why photoshop does not recognise them.Does anyone have any ideas or are they gone forever.P.S. these files won't open in "My pictures" either.DAVE
