Lost or Overwritten Photos Help

I have an external hard drive and I seem to have lost a load of photos, not sure if they have been deleted or overwritten, can I get them back. I have used various recovery systems and some of them bring up lots of photos that wont open because they may be corrupt of the wrong photos. I don't really want to pay too much if anything.

Recuva is free and good at recovering files but if they have been overwritten you're unlikely to be successful.

If you have Vista or above open the drive and in the search box top right type jpg and see what results you get.
