I found this great program after Sharon made a mistake and clicked DELETE on her digital camera (followed by at least one "Are you sure you want to delete everything?") and wiped out the entire thing. The rules of recovery start with "do not take anymore photos" - which she did immediately after wiping the memory card clean.
So on a wing and a prayer, I told her to download a program from LifeHacker and see if it works. Amazingly, she managed to get over 500 of the photos back! (Yes, 500+ photos - dating back almost a full year). We were so excited and she sent an email to everyone telling them to hold on to that program just in case you ever hit DELETE - OK - YES and then scream the scream of death when you realize what you did to your photos from the family trip to Europe and your dear old cat who is no longer alive.
So in the midst of all of the recovery - we found the pic that I mentioned was missing in an earlier blog. This is the two of us having New Years Eve dinner at Brio Tuscan Grille. She wanted to make sure the food was photographed, I just wanted to see what my new blouse by Tahari looked like! :-)
