Undelete and retrieve photos

Undelete Photos

Have you ever accidentally deleted photos? It can be heart-breaking. I had selected a bunch of family photos on my phone to send, and I decided to delete the current photo. Bad idea: I deleted all the photos I had just selected. What to do?

Most deletions are like crossing out a chapter in the table of contents: the pages appear to be missing, but the chapter is still there if you know the page number. First, make sure you don’t over-write your photos: stop using the SD card, the camera or the phone until you have recovered your photos.

Second, get this free photo recovery softwareRePicVid scans for deletions, and lets you pick the photos you want to recover. Windows and Mac versions are available.
