Answers :

There are various sources of image recovery software. Most decent photo stores have some type of recovery software, which usually recovers most, if not all, deleted images. Ask at your local photo shop. Prices will vary, usually on a "per image recovered" basis. There is also software sold on-line, which will check your disk for free, and show you what it can recover. In order to actually recover them, you need to buy the software. I suggest trying the local shops first. Hopefully, all is not all lost! Good luck.
