Nothing important. There is an image file I now have a use for, but it's not in my recycle bin.

I can always go and take another picture - just to show lens sharpness really.

It was deleted a few days ago.

Thanks




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

Piriform Recuva. Has worked well for me in the past as a free tool. There are better options for $ but this should do the job if you havn't done too much on the pc since the file was deleted

ps not sure about not done much, all you need is one binary missing and the file could be / is corrupt

There are a lot of free options. Gizmo's Freeware is a good site for freeware reviews. In this case see Best Free Data Recovery and File Un-delete Utility.

If you install this onto the disk you deleted the file from there's a chance you'll overwrite the deleted file by installing the software. Install onto a different disk.

This will find hundreds or thousands of deleted files. If it's just a test photo just take another. Install undelete for next time.
