I was reading the February 2006 issue of Maximum PC until I came to the section titles, 'Recover your Deleted Files'. A few years ago, I had over 500 pictures of NY/WA D.C, and a lot of my dad's super important Iraq photos. I somehow screwed my computer up (emachines 566i2). The O/S could not start up, says I have to reinstall Windows ME (i have xp pro sp2 now). I put the restore disc in, which uses Norton Ghost, and it said it dumped everything. At that point, I knew I could not get the pictures back, so I just restored it. In the magazine, it says I can use Zero Assumption Recovery, and GetDataBack for NTFS/FAT. I downloaded all three plus a program called 'Recovery2000'. None of them helped. I found the mp3's/mp4's I recently put on and deleted, but no JPEG's. Is there a way I can get my pictures back by using some kind of software. Thank You! I can give more info if needed.
