How to Recover that Photo, Picture or File You Deleted Accidentally
Recover lost or deleted files
Can I recover files that I have accidentally deleted?
Back up and restore: frequently asked questions

Until you've recovered your pics (or determined that you can't recover any more of them) it's VERY IMPORTANT that you don't save anything or create any new files or folders. In fact, the less you do on your computer, the better, because anything created or saved could be created or saved right over the very files you're trying to recover.
Therefore, before you use ANY recovery software: be sure to check out all of the options before you actually use (or download) any one of them. Although most recovery software products just scan your system before they actually change it, you don't want to take a chance that ANYTHING is done to your system until you are absolutely sure what course you want to take. That also goes for writing any files to your system or making any changes of any kind. The more you use your computer, the less chance you'll have of recovering your old data.

That said, Recuva is a well known and trusted 3rd party recovery app. There are others that are also used often, so check them out to see which one suits your particular situation the closest. Here are a few examples. (By the way, if you do have someone who is really skilled at file recovery, then, by all means, use that person.)

Glary Undelete is an easy to use, yet powerful file undelete solution for FAT and NTFS file systems. It will bring back files emptied from the Recycle Bin, in a DOS window, from Windows Explorer with the SHIFT key held down. It will even recover files that have been deleted by bugs, crashes and viruses! (GlaryUtilities Undelete module - Try "other builds" - the bottom link of the three - Glary Utilities)

MiniTool Power Data Recovery Free Edition - can restore lost data even if the partition is formatted or deleted, restore data from corrupted hard drive, virus infection, unexpected system shutdown or software failure. It support IDE, SATA, SCSI, USB hard disk, memory card, USB flash drive, CD/DVD, Blue-Ray Disk, iPod.

Shadow Explorer - Tutorial: Recover lost files with Shadow Explorer How-To Geek Forums - Downloads –Shadow Explorer is an alternative program for "Previous Versions,” for those editions of Vista and Windows 7 that do not offer Previous Versions. ( - Manual is the link to the “how to” instructions explaining how to utilize Shadow Explorer.)

Yes. Put them on to a USB memory stick (I'm guessing that is what you meant.)

Take that stick to another computer where:
FIRST AND FOREMOST-check the usb stick for viruses,
2nd. See if you can access and view the files.

Now withe that out of the way, something is wrong on your computer and that must be fixed immediately if not sooner.

Download, install, run a FULL SCAN by MalwareBytes (link in my sig).
