Is there any way to recover accidentally deleted photos?

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.6 running on Windows 7 PC.
After importing a group of photos including JPG and RAW files from a memory card (which was later reformatted), I noticed that the photos ended up in a folder on the wrong external drive. I tried to move them to another folder on the main drive using Lightroom and somehow deleted the original files. I can still see them in a Collection, but they cannot be edited or Developed as the underlying file cannot be found. Is there any way to recover these photos? Willing to listen to all suggestions. Thanks for your input.

Find an "undelete utility" (one such utility is called Recuva, but I have never used it) and see if it can recover your RAW photos. If you are going to do this, do not perform any other tasks on your computer except to find, download, install and run this undelete utility. If possible, download and install on a different drive than the photos were on. You can also try this undelete utility on your camera card.
While I'm at it, you might want to develop and implement a backup strategy, in which you don't delete from the camera card until you have TWO (or more) copies of your photos, on TWO (or more) different physical disks. And don't forget to back up your catalog file regularly and automatically.

  • HT1414 I updated the version on my Iphone and didn't sync before and lost all my photos, apps, contacts before.  Is there any way to recover the deleted photos deleted ?

    I updated the version on my Iphone and didn't sync before ans as a result I lost all my photos, apps, and contacts.  I will like to recover the deleted photos as they are very important to me,  it's there a way to recover them?

    did you ever do a backup.  cause if you did say like a year ago.  it should still be there and you could at least get the info back until that date.

  • Are there any way to recover the deleted images form iPhone 4

    hello guy's
    are there any way to recover the deleted images form iPhone 4
    note : i haven't make any copy of the photo in my pc so i relay need for them
    plz help

    The Camera Roll is for temporary storage as with any other digital camera. Although photos in the Camera Roll are included with your iPhone's backup which is updated by iTunes as the first step during the iTunes sync process, photos in the Camera Roll can and should be imported by your computer ASAP. If you didn't sync your iPhone with iTunes since these photos were captured by your iPhone and the photos in the Camera Roll weren't imported by your computer, the photos are gone.
    Depending on how wealthy you are, you can contact a data recovery service to see if they can recover deleted photos from an iPhone's flash drive, but you will pay an arm and a leg for this. Such a data recovery service is not cheap and with no guarantee the data will be recoverable.

    What happened that you lost them?
    If you have synced recently you could restore the iPhone and it will restore the camera roll to it's state at the time of that sync.

  • Is there any way to recover a deleted sparse bundle?

    I had an old sparsebundle (380GB) saved onto an external drive.
    I wanted to keep this old sparsebundle,
    but when I went to run a new Time Machine backup to this external drive it deleted the old sparsebundle.
    Is there any way to recover this deleted sparsebundle.
    As I began to run the new Time Machine backup, it changed the name of the old sparsebundle
    from xxxxx.sparsebundle
    to xxxx.purgeable
    then POOF it disappeared.
    I cancelled the new Time Machine backup as soon as I saw the file extension change to .purgeable,
    but even though the new Time Machine backup didn't seem to start (I cancelled it in time),
    the old sparsebundle is gone.
    I ran Data Rescue and all it could find is a file that is only a few KILObytes called xxxxx.in_process.
    It would take a long time for the 380GB sparsebundle to be overwritten,
    so I don't think that happened.
    But can the old sparsebundle be recovered (and be usable)?

    A sparsebundle is a disk image.. if the actual file info is wiped then I really doubt you can recover it. Since you ran a recovery software which has worked recovering stuff for me.. and it couldn't find it.. your only hope would be real data recovery centre.. but although they can get raw data off the disk how useful it would be is questionable.. sorry but I think it is gone.

    Is there any way that I can delete photos from my iPhone 4s by using iPhoto on my iMac (Mid 2011) using OS X Yosemite v10.10.2?  It seems it would be much more convenient to use my iMac to delete the photos from my iPhone or iPad, but I can't figure out how to do it.  Thanks for your consideration and help!

  • Is there any way to retrieve accidentally deleted source clips?

    I accidentally deleted source clips for a video project, and now the viewer won't show my video (although I can still see the frames when I run my cursor over the project). Is there any way to retrieve the files or show iMovie where to find the source clips on my computer, kind of like how it's possible to show iTunes where to find source mp3s on my computer when they're moved from the iTunes file? Since I can still see the frames when I move my cursor over the clips (with the exclamation points in the corners), it seems as though the memory of the edited clips must still be in iMovie somehow and be recoverable. Any help would be appreciated - I'd really like to avoid having to re-import and re-edit all of those clips!

    Basics of File Recovery
    Files in Trash
    If you simply put files in the Trash you can restore them by opening the Trash (left-click on the Trash icon) and drag the files from the Trash to your Desktop or other desired location.  OS X also provides a short-cut to undo the last item moved to the Trash -press COMMAND-Z.
    If you empty the Trash the files are gone. If a program does an immediate delete rather than moving files to the Trash, then the files are gone.  Recovery is possible but you must not allow any additional writes to the hard drive - shut it down. When files are deleted only the directory entries, not the files themselves, is modified. The space occupied by the files has been returned to the system as available for storage, but the files are still on the drive. Writing to the drive will then eventually overwrite the space once occupied by the deleted files in which case the files are lost permanently. Also if you save a file over an existing file of the same name, then the old file is overwritten and cannot be recovered.
    General File Recovery
    If you stop using the drive it's possible to recover deleted files that have not been overwritten by using recovery software such as Data Rescue II, File Salvage or TechTool Pro.  Each of the preceding come on bootable CDs to enable usage without risk of writing more data to the hard drive.  Two free alternatives are Disk Drill and TestDisk.  Look for them and demos at MacUpdate or CNET Downloads.
    The longer the hard drive remains in use and data are written to it, the greater the risk your deleted files will be overwritten.

  • Is there any way to recover a deleted note if a backup hasn't been done recently?

    I recently either deleted a "note" on accident, or it just disappeared. I had just created a note a few days ago, and it had important information on it. As I was looking at it, it just disappeared like I deleted it, but I never hit the trash can button, because if I had hit the trash can button, it would have asked me either to "delete note" or "cancel." Those questions never popped up, so I do not know where the note went. Help me please!!!!

    Ok now to answer my own question in a way, and I hope this helps others...but I found out that if you have your notes synced to your email account, all your notes save in a folder within your email account.  They all save under the folder called "notes." And I found all my notes there, even ones I had purposefully deleted a long time ago.  So before you go reset or whatever to your iphone, just check through your email account first!

  • Is there any way to restore a deleted profile?

    I have been having some issues that I hoped a truly CLEAN reinstall would fix. So after bookmarking all of my tabs and exporting my bookmarks so I'd be able to "restore" my "session" later, I uninstalled Firefox and told it to remove my user data.
    Then I reinstalled, imported my bookmarks, and manually began adding plugins back in. And discovered that Firefox didn't actually bookmark ANY of the tabs I told it to bookmark before uninstalling yesterday, so I have no record of them. No history, because I wiped that out. No saved session because there's no way to export it. And now no bookmarks because it screwed up.
    Is there any way to recover the deleted user profile? Surely it should still exist on my hard drive somewhere, right?
