photos recovery

  harps1h 08:53 02 Jan 2008

when installed vista ultimate, it make a backup of "windows.old" I had backed up all my photos onto a disk which i subsequently lost and the photos were accidentally deleted. is there anyway in which these photos can be retrieved as the system restore only goes back for one week and therefore impossible to try it that way.

Start and type


If they are avaible,they will be listed.

However if they have been deleted and the drive been written to since,you may need some recovery software.

Two of my favourites are Testdisk and Driverescue

Testdisk click here with photorec

Driverescue click here

Recuva click here

PCInspector click here

Try this lot out first and if no joy,we can find others for you to try.
