Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Mark, in Vista, you find all files and folders in the shadows. Try Shadow Explorer and you will see.
There is some useful discussion of the problem here:
Another thought: you could also try your undelete program on the camera card, especially if it hasn't been used much since the photos were taken. Some special programs for this are also available (try Google).

Couple of weeks back I had the misfortune of wiping out 30 gb of precious files (photos and videos of my son). I was trying to free some space in my hard disk to make space for ubuntu. I was resizing the partitions with PartLogic when the resizing stopped midway and gave an error message. When I booted into Windows (xp sp3) i got a shock when windows reported 30 gb partition as being empty.
I tried two software to recover my files.
first I used Avira's UNERASE...but it also saw nothing.
Then I used GETDATABACK for NTFS from http://www.runtime.org/ .
It scanned the partition for 30 minutes and saw all the lost files. After a few hours of copying the recovered files, I had all my files back !
I was very please with this software's performance. May be it can help you also.

It's agreed that the Stellar Phoenix Data Recovery tool will be able to recover the deleted photos from the hard disk, but it needs to be kept in mind that the recovery process is done quickly and not after many days.
The reason being that after many data, the deleted photos, though lost for a temporary period from the hard disk memory; will be lost permanently if the photos are overwritten by any newer data. So, if your photos are deleted from the hard disk, recover them using any recovery tool as quickly as possible.
This is very common issue with most of the new computer users who lost their photos or data accidentaly from the hard disk. But good new is those data's are fully reccoverable. It is because when the data from the hard disk is deleted permanently, only the address to which it is assigned is released and the data remains in the hard drive (provided it is not overwritten). So, you can retrive it easily just by using any recovery software. If you are using Mac system and want to recover some photos then I can suggest you one software and that is Photo Recovery for Mac. I hope it will help you.
All the Best!
