*Fruit Bat /\0/* , thanks for that. I remember Woodchip bringing it up to our attention many years ago.
Lawford , be aware that you will need another harddrive with a destination folder to run Campic. It will, or can, run for a long time and will pick up ALL images on your PC even those in your temp folders and those long ago deleted if not written over.
You do not need another hard-drive to run CampicRestor - I got my CampicRestor from a Disc on a Digital Photo Magazine years ago and have been using it for years (even pre-Woodchip).
I used to include my own Full Instructions, within these Forums, for running the program - worked every time!
After downloading CampicRestor (hereafter DIR) save a shortcut to your Desktop - Name the Shortcut Digital Image Recovery. On the Desktop make a New Folder and name it DIR, then make sure that your new DIR Folder is shown as the DESTINATION for the recovered images when running the program.
You can even Open the DIR Folder while the program is running to see recovered images appearing - you can Cancel the process at any time and all recovered images up to that time will show in your DIR Folder.
As most of your know, I have not always been known as Nontek!!
