    Unhappy can i recover deleted photos ?
    I was erasing some random files and then i emptied the recycle bin. The next day when i opened iphoto, it was empty!

    Im new using mac and usually save pictures directly from my camera to the iphoto library.

    When i realized that there where no pictures in the library i thougt that they could be somewhere in my hard drive, but i looked for all the images using finder and didnt find any.

    All these data recovery software for mac seem so complicated and i idont know what to do.

    I want to recover my photos and i need some help through the process.

    Please help me!!

    if not look under the iphoto preferences and see where / what folder photos are saved to and then go to that folder.

    Vicky, if you are using OS X 10.4 or 10.5, use Spotlight to search for '.jpg', without the quotes. That may lead you to a location for the files.

    A search came up with this, but I didn't follow up for any reviews.

    Keep in mind that the more you use your system, the less you will successfully recover.

    This is also your personal lesson to backup.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
