Recovery Deleated Lost Pics of Vista

  Audio~~Chip 23:57 15 Feb 2011

after getting my friends vista desktop up and running apprently his daughter managed to delete the Pictures within the Pics folder of Vista.

also found out this was done months ago as machine has been down for a while. does anyone recomend a freebie programme to run to see if the pictures could be found and restored without having to provide a registration or payment.

Thanks in advance for any calls. maybe someone in the group has been in the same situation ?

And when you've finished teach your friend about back-ups.

I advise everyone I know with valued Pics, Docs & music to BACK-UP but do they take notice of what ya say. Will try the suggestions in order, hopefully not to find at the end of a recovery before having whats actually found it doesn't have to be paid for. will keep you informed

You can retrieve all deleted lost pics of vista with the help of Kernel for FAT and NTFS, photo recovery tool software which instantly and efficiently recovery all type of pics from the partitions of the drive as well from the memory card.
