So why don't you invest those 10 minutes now.
I've been on the website. It looks useful and will include in my tool kit for the future.

No comments useless, attacking other people who are trying to offer additional insight is, well, useless.

We always welcome additional comments. But those must help to solve the OPs problem, not to confuse the OP.

guys, instead of arguing you could give me some more help? None of the suggestions above have worked, and this is supposed to be a Windows help forum.

So what happened when you tried Recuva?

It recovered the pictures but they wouldn't open because it said they were corrupt. Also when it gives you the summary after the recovery, it says that (for example) 1549 files recovered, 29 files successfully recovered, 1520 files partially recovered. Do you think you could help? I saw something that said all deleted files are stored somewhere on the hard drive.

Files can only be fully recovered if the sectors that the photo's were written too, were not subsequently overwritten by other data......it sounds to me like that has happened, so unless I'm mistaken, its not looking very promising.

Have you tried PhotoRec? Possibly you might consider a full partition recovery, but, and no disrespect intended, you might be better off letting a more experienced person attempt that, if you decide to try it.

I would tend to agree that it doesn't look good. I Would think that all you have left is the chance that a commercial workshop could recover some of your files but we are talking in terms of a cost in the region of 300 at least. Well last time I looked it was about that!

See here:

Previous versions of files: frequently asked questions

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...-deleted-files
There is a video in the second link that will walk you through it.

Right click your pictures folder
*(if this is where the pictures originally were, otherwise right click the folder where the pictures used to be before you copied them)*
-Restore previous versions. Choose the day before you deleted the photos.
Simplest way to do it.

I downloaded photorec but did not know how to use it. Is there a tutorial for it? My laptop is one thats part of a laptop scheme from my school. I cant restore previous versions because my 'system administrator has disabled the use of restore previous versions' Is there anyway that the system administrator at school could access the missing Photos?? thanks for your suggestions

Yes, if your school admin is willing, they could help with the previous version feature.

Edit: Just noticed you said disabled. I thought you meant you could not access it.
If its disabled, this will not work.
If its just that your blocked because they blocked you from using it, they can help you.
Ether way try asking the school admin or helpdesk for help.

Why don't all files go to the recycle bin?
