"i bet you let out a Hoot when that first pic appeared,"










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.

" use DBAN to recover all my lost files,"



I checked out the Dban, Sprock.

From the link you posted, it looks like a nuke program rather than a recovery program.


:(



I sure wish I could find a freeware data recovery program

Slow down and think about it.


Like you have been told, there are a lot of possibilities.


Geek squad wanted $60 just to mail your drive? Thats a burn.



Next time before you run a defrag, you'll check your backups, huh?

(I done the same thing once)

Note: I reviewed your first post. Those pic's may be still on the external hard drive, you can attack the problem just like the disk you defragged.

I already thought that out rokjox.
That's why I am looking for freeware data recovery software.

You are right. I did not defrag my external, so I am hoping
to find some freeware out there.

Any recommendations?

Tucows has a really extensive collection of free software. A LOT of maintenance stuff.

I use them quite a bit through the years.
