I was deleting individual pictures from my Coolpix L2 or L3.

Resolved Question:

I was deleting individual pictures from my Coolpix L2 or L3. I evidently pressed the wrong button, got an icon that looked to me like it would indicate "duplicate," then an hourglass icon, and suddenly a bunch of pictures were gone.

Can I get them back?

Welcome to Just Answer My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today to resolve or identify Your Problem.

If the images you want to recover are on a Flash memory card or in your camera can still be recovered using the same type of recovery software. Photo recovery software accesses a memory card just as if it was a hard drive. If you are using Windows and your digital camera appears in Windows Explorer by the name of the camera rather than as a drive letter, you may need to take the memory card out of the camera and put it in a USB memory card reader before you can start the recovery.

  1. Connect the memory card, camera so that it can be accessed like a removable hard drive.
  2. Use a tool such as Flash Recovery or DeleteFIX Photo.
  3. Mac users should try PhotoRecovery for Mac.

See a tutorial showing how to recover photos using DeleteFIX Photo

I think I downloaded the software but I think my card reader won't accept the memory card. I don't have the direct cord; it's at work.

Do you have any idea where the software landed on my computer?

I will pay the charge since my lack of equipment is not your fault. Thank you for helping.
