I did something very similar. Bought a new external and hooked it to a Windows PC via Firewire... big mistake (at the time anyway). I copied about 45,000 images, roughly half personal, half business archive. I spot checked several key images which were in photoshop format, checked the file sizes and was satisfied that all was good so I deleted them from the internal... the recycle bin couldn't handle it all so they just went away. I then defragged the internal.

A few days later I was looking for some originals a customer requested and became nauseous when i realized that every single RAW image file was corrupt and lost forever... all the PS files were OK but the NEFs were history. I was devastated.

Since I've gotten over it, found a about a third of them on DVD backups... there were some wonderful visual memories but in the end, it was just stuff. My quality of life hasn't suffered nearly as badly as I thought it would.

I'm sorry that happened to you knowing that gut wrenching feeling you get when the reality hits that they are indeed gone forever. But hey, probably felt really good when they came back.

My outhouse pic? Been in a few, don't 'member
recording the event. Would be loathe to put it
on a hard drive - maybe a hard dive?

ps
It is pretty hard to beat DVD's for cheap reliable
storeage. Many people save two sets with one
set never accessed except in an emergency.

For the future, I found a good way to archive that stuff but still keep it accessable.

You can buy disc drive docking stations (BlacX) that allow you to plug and unplug raw drives in seconds. I have a few 500GB drives that I copy files to periodically and then stash'em in my sock drawer. The station costs about $50, the drives are about $100 if I remember right.

You guys do know that it is pretty easy to undelete things, right...? Well, it's easy as long as you IMMEDIATELY try to recover the files, before you over-write the old info with new info. I did the same thing a few months ago and was able to recover 95% of what I lost.

Here is a basic article on how and why this works...

http://www.tech-pro.net/how-to-recover-deleted-files.html

Just google, "Recover deleted files"

Also, don't pay for a program to do this. tThere are TONS of free programs that will do this. I can't remember which one I used because after I used it I deleted it... =)

Good Luck

What strider said.

I had a customer who brought me her computer and a huge stack of DVD's and proceeds to tell me how she backed up all of her photos, many, many years worth onto these DVD's then went and did a fresh install of WindowsXP...formatting the drive the whole 9 yards. When she goes to reinstall all of her pics back onto the hard drive, to her horror, the DVD's are all blank!!

Well I was able to recover 99% of her photos of off the formatted hard drive with some special software.
Even after deleting or formatting, the data is still intact on your hard drive, until you overwrite it!

I figured out what she had done. She burned all the DVD's in Packet Writing mode not Disk-at-once mode, and never finalized the sessions, so the data appeared to be there when the disk was in her computer before she reformatted etc. but looked empty to any other computer.

"You guys do know that it is pretty easy to undelete things, right...? "















EXCEPT when you defrag shortly after you empy the recycle bin.
Which I did.
So Strider, the site you linked, couldn't help. They said chances were bad at recovery, if you have defragmented.

It's too bad. It would have been cool if I could have got back the last yearand a half of pics.

Yeah,Doc Sprock, I did.
Thank goodness I still had the old computer and I was able to get the pics on it back.
I sure wish though I could get the last year and a half of pics I had on my new computer. It's too bad the defragging I did made that impossible.

"They said chances were bad at recovery, if you have defragmented."

It decreases your chances but the odds are still in your favor.
How big is the drive and how much was on it before and after the delete?

Bottom line is, you should try. It's not too late.
Even if you only recovered a hand full, it's worth the effort.

Cosmic, sorry if my reply was a little bit snarky. And without sitting at your computer I can't know your exact situation so I don't really know which website to direct you. But as Shack has said, it is not too late to recover what you have lost. If you want the pictures back, most of them are probably still there.

One tip I remember from my experience with this... whatever program you use to recover your files should have a search function so you can tell it which KIND of files you want to recover. Since you are trying to recover pictures, the search should be for .jpg, .png, .gif, etc... This will drastically reduce the amount of crap that it recovers, making it easier for you to find what you want.

Was able to rebuild the fat and recover 20 years of photos.

Well, back on topic.

I found a program that someone from ST told me about.
It's called, restoration.
I ran it last night, ( that's why I wasn't online to see this thread turn for the worse) and I was able to recover a few of the pics that I had on the new computer and external drive. Alas, most of the files were corrupted, but I am happy to get back at least a few of the pics, so it's not a complete loss.
