We’ve all done it, and if you haven’t yet… you will! I promise! Sometimes it’s an innocent accident. Occasionally, a memory card may get corrupt or wiped. What do you do when you delete your photos?

Cry… yes, that’s usually the first thing. But my Dad always told me it’s okay to have your pity party, but then you need to move on. But moving on doesn’t mean moving on WITHOUT them!

There is a chance that you could still recover those images. I recently deleted some files completely by accident and found a trusty piece of software, Recuva, that was able to recover 4 out of the 7 files I deleted. I’ll take a 57% success rate over a complete loss any day!

Download Recuva for Windows here.
Not a Windows user?  No fear, there are alternatives to Recuva, see this link.
