How can I access deleted photos from my iPhoto Library Cache?

My Macbook Pro broke about a year ago and I recently took the hard drive out to access the files. I have a hard drive enclosure to USB to my Acer (Windows) Laptop. I was looking through all the folders when I came across this: D:\Users\Lizee\Library\Caches\Desktop\iPhoto Albums
In this folder is a list of different albums I have had over the years and in the albums there are photo files, but I cannot view them! This gives me hope that maybe there is a way to salvage and get back some of the photos I once deleted! Please let me know if you know ANY way I can get any of these photos back... I will do anything!

I don't believe there is any way to do what you want. These are not your photos.

  • How do you permanently delete Photos from my iPhoto library?

    When I delete a picture in iPhoto by hitting the "Delete" button on my keyboard, it vanishes from the Library but if I go into my hard-drive and look under my Photos folders, Ill find its still there. How do I delete it for good the first time?

    Did you confirm that they were in the iPhoto trash bin before you emptied it via the iPhoto->Empty Trash menu option? If you were in an album and hit the delete key you only removed the photo from that album. You have to be in an event for the Delete key to send the photo to the trash.
    If done right the original image file, thumbnail and any modified versions will be completely deleted from the HD.
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • How can I move selected photos from one iPhoto Library to another?

    When I set up a new iPhoto Library and copied photos into it, only the thumbnails transferred.  I want to combine the two libraries now and have the master photos in the combined library.  How do I do that in iPhoto 11 and how do I then remove duplicates?

    The only way to merge libraries is with the paid ($20) version of iPhoto Library Manager

    If they were photos taken with your iPhone and you have Photo Stream activated through iCloud they are in the cloud. If not - they are in the wind.

    how can i retrieve deleted photos from my iphone 5c.

    Restore your iPhone from the last backup you made before you deleted the photos from the iPhone. An iCloud backup (or an iTunes backup) saves the content of the camera roll.

  • How can i recover deleted photos from my iphone 5 - help!!

    How can i recover deleted photos from my iphone 5 - help!!
    I have tried many online programs but nothing seems to recover the last 60 photos i accidentally deleted.

    i have i cloud but because my phone memory had been so full lately i believe it wasnt being backed up?
    the last back up noted on my phone is 9 nov 2013 - i deleted the photos just on monday - does this mean i can still recover them somehow?
    they were never imported to a comp but yes the pics were saved on my photo stream buti acutally first deleted off photo stream. what i did was create a folder within my albums then added the 60 photos to the album, then deleted 1 off photo stream to test and it didnt delete from my new folder, then deleted all off photo stream and then i thought i could delete off camera roll, then did that and realised it also deleted off my new folder created - so was left with nothing!
    if you know anyway pls help?

  • How can I recover deleted photos from my camera roll?

    How can I recover deleted photos from my camera roll and my photo stream?
    Please, help me!

    I finally got up with a solution.
    All you need is the photo file from your last backup.
    You can extract this file from your backup by using iBackupbot for itunes. Get this via:
    Once you get this file you extract the photos in form of original database file. The screenshots on the website will help you to know how to extract the files.
    Okay so now when you've got the photo file you simply need to SSH into your phone to /private/var/mobile/Library/photo were you'll already see a photo file.
    Replace the old photo file that you've extracted from the backup by the one that already exist in.
    Don't forget to keep an extra copy of the new photo file if in case you go wrong somewhere.
    It worked for me and I hope it works for you too.
    Thanks mende1, you were indirectly helpful.

    You cannot, unless they were there at last backup.  You can try restoring from backup, losing anything done since the last sync.

  • HT4528 how can you recover deleted photos from the iPhone hard drive?

    Is there anyway possible i can recover my deleted photos from my iphone hard drive for free?

    You can't for two reasons: First, the iPhone doesn't have a hard drive. Second, there is no Trash folder, so once something is deleted it is gone forever. If you were foresighted enough to sync your phone regularly the photos should still be in the app you used for managing photos from digital cameras on your computer, and they are also in the iPhone backup on your computer. If you enabled Photo Stream they are also in iCloud. But if you didn't take advantage of any of these backup options you are out of luck.

  • How can I permanently delete photos from my boyfriends phone??

    Hi all,
    My boyfriend has photos of me that I dont want him to have.
    I've asked him to delete them but he jokes that he will.... eventually.
    He has an iPhone 4S. I want to permanently delete some photos he has, I dont want him to be able to do some kind of sync or backup & have them again.
    If I deleted them from his iTunes.. his desktop picture folders.. his PC recycle bin AND deleted them off his phone, will he still be able to find them?? Also if he does an update in the future, will they somehow appear again? And how can I know if he has synced them to iCloud/set up iCloud?
    Thanks in advance

    Theyre all in his Camera Roll. I've never downloaded/updated the iCloud control panel on my pc,
    So he syncs only to your PC?
    I dont think he has the Shared Photo Stream option on, but I'll check. If he does have it, is it simple to access it?
    Open the Photos app, tap Shared at bottom to see any Shared Photo Streams.
    My Photo Stream is in Albums.

  • How can I retrieve deleted photos from trash?

    Please help! My wife accidentally deleted all of the images from the "All Images" folder. This included all pictures in iPhoto and some clip art (about 7,000 files). I am not concerned about the clip art, but the photos are a concern. We had a few dozen events in our iPhoto library. The events are all still there, but the photos are not. There are white boxes in each event where photos used to be. It looks like all the photos are still in the waste basket. Is there a way I can move them back into iPhoto? And furthermore, is there a way to have them go back to the events from which they came?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    Back Up and try rebuild the library: hold down the apple and option (or alt) keys while launching iPhoto. Use the resulting dialogue to rebuild.
    when it comes to burning them to a CD again it is only those few that first showed that i can burn...?
    Sounds like you may have a damaged database.
    Try these in order - from best option on down...
    1. Do you have an up-to-date back up? If so, try copy the library6.iphoto file from the back up to the iPhoto Library (Right Click -> Show Package Contents) allowing it to overwrite the damaged file.
    2. Download iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.
    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.
    3. If neither of these work then you'll need to create and populate a new library.
    To create and populate a new library:
    Note this will give you a working library with the same Events and pictures as before, however, you will lose your albums, keywords, modified versions, books, calendars etc.
    In the iPhoto Preferences -> Events Uncheck the box at 'Imported Items from the Finder'
    Move the iPhoto Library to the desktop
    Launch iPhoto. It will ask if you wish to create a new Library. Say Yes.
    Go into the iPhoto Library (Right Click -> Show Package Contents) on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual Event Folders to the iPhoto Window and it will recreate them in the new library.
    When you're sure all is well you can delete the iPhoto Library on your desktop.
    In the future, in addition to your usual back up routine, you might like to make a copy of the library6.iPhoto file whenever you have made changes to the library as protection against database corruption.

  • How can I recover deleted photos from the internal memory???

    I was using Sony Bridge to import photos from my phone to my Mac.
    After importing.. the software told me it was successful and complete then asked me if I wanted to delete the pics off my phone.. I pressed 'yes' because my phone was full on memory..
    After it was finished deleting I then decided to check my imported photos only to find they wern't even there?!??! It has created an iPhoto library.. but it won't even open and seems to be empty.. 
    All the photos are now deleted off my phone and I can't seem to find them anywhere on my Mac. I have tried recovery programs with no luck. 
    I am seriously upset :'(
    Is there any way to recover them from my internal memory!??! :-( 
    Are they on my Mac??!! Because Sony Bridge told me they had successfully imported!!! 

    Hi Natasha_L
    I'm very sorry for the late answer.
    I got a reply from the development crew today.
    We tested it and indeed we were able to reproduce it in the case that the iPhoto Library has been migrated into the new Photo Library.
    If that is the case, the user might be able to recover the pictures in the following directory:
    ~/Pictures/iPhoto Library.photolibrary/Auto Import
    If unfortunately the pictures are not there, there is an slight possibility that they still remain in the temporary directory, as they are first copied there and then moved into the Auto Import folder. To search that temporary directory, the user can run this command in the
    find /var/ -name "iphoto" 2>/dev/null
    The problem will be fixed to BFM(4.1).
    Best regards
