When you delete things in the recycle bin, they are renamed with weird names. Try searching with Recuva for pictures in the Recycle Bin..

Why did you put them in there in the first place? Thinking I'll get them out later. :angry:

 

Open Recuva and go to Options and tick the Deep scan. It will take a LOT longer to scan your drive but you maybe be lucky. Oh and don't save any files to your drive in the mean time as this will reduce the chances of a good recovery.

 

If you find them then burn them to a CD so it won't happen again. ;)

Try Recuva normal scan and sort the results on last modified date, and look at files with the date of CCleaner deletion. Or search on filename, the recycler renames deleted files to Dcnn.ext in XP and $Rnnnnnn.ext in Vista. If you find anything recover them to a flash drive.

Unless you have ccleaner set to over write the files you shouldnt have any trouble recovering them.

If you had Ccleaner set to overwrite (secure delete) the files your chances of getting them back are, unfortunately, pretty much zero.

A forensic recovery facility might be able to advise you of the likelihood. Probably cost a fair bit, though, even if it can be done.

 

If Ccleaner was set to "normal file deletion" the chances of getting them back using the methods above, are very good. But only if you don't go defragging/wiping/doing a lot of work on the computer. The more you do on the computer, the greater the chance of the data being overwritten.

Were the pictures deleted from your memory card or from your computer?

 

If you delete an item from a removable device, the Recycle Bin for that item is actually on the device. Are you trying the recovery methods on the card connected?

 

Did you use the card for more photos? If so, you've probably overwritten some if not all of the previous pictures.
