A few weeks ago, I sat with my digital camera and cut the pictures from it to my folder on my desktop, I pasted them inside the Pictures folder that was in that folder and then I made 2 copies of that Picture folder and put in on my desktop, trying to have a backup and be safe.
As I begin to organize the pictures by making folders, I started to drag some pictures to folders and I also started to cut and paste some. This was taking too long so I decided to use the feature Shift click more than 1 picture, cut and paste and then I was also using the Ctrl and click to select pictures and paste them in certain folders.
While I am doing this, I notice that somehow I have copied quite a few pictures and I started to select them with Shift click and delete, I noticed that as I was doing that, somehow several pictures were selected and I assumed that they were the ones that I copied and I hit delete.
As I begin to look for certain pictures, I noticed that they had disappeared, so I went to my recycle bin and did a restore deleted items and still they did not reappear.
Ok, after asking around someone told me to do a restore to the time and date that I was cutting and pasting and I did that, but I made a mistake and didn't change the date when I did the restore, so it restored to a previous date, I noticed that and I went in and did another restore and made sure to change the date and time this time, but still NO PICTURES!!!!!
I have had others to scan the entire computer to look for the lost pictures, I have recently downloaded a Recuva program to help me as well, is there anyone out there that knows Vista enough to be able to help me find those pictures?
Please, if you can, please help me and thank you.
