Customer Question
A REPEAT question. two days...
A REPEAT question. two days ago, I submitted the question, but lost contact, and the message did not go through. However, I had already approved a payment of $ 18.00
through PayPAL. Here is my question :
To my horror, I have lost all of my photo folders (family, vacation) from the "My Pictures"
file. It now only shows "sample pictures" and "Pictures downloaded from AOL" This
probably happened when I cleaned out old things from "My Documents" program file,
which also containe a "My Pictures" folder, which I deleted, thinking it was a copy of
the "My Pictures" file. I have tried everything, incl. System Restore, without luck.
Is there any hope and any way to possibly retrieve those pictures ?? Or do I
have to just cry and start using a back-up ?Rudolph (You have helped me in the past)

Theres a program called pandora recovery that you can use to get them back. You want to download pandora and follow all prompts to install and then its gonna walk you through how to find your files you want to run a deep scan on your C: drive and choose pictures from the menu on the left and select jpg by itself and it will bring up all pictures you have had on the pc before you need to have either a usb flash drive or an external harddrive to save them to because you cant save them to your C: drive until you recover them If you require more help just let me know you can reach me here directly http://www.justanswer.com/profile.aspx?PF=36403141&FID=0

 

Heres the link to download Pandora

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
