That's really horrible to lose people's photos, because it's always embarassed to ask people to let you take photos for them again after telling them that you lost their photos, especially for wedding. You can never find that time and smile again. However, this disaster really strikes. Then what is supposed to do? Don't panick. If you want to know whether there is a chance to get them back, you need to answer the following questions first:
• Did you put new data to your computer, or just say the C: drive specifically?
• Did you use your camera to snap new photos with the same memory card inside?
If your answers are NO, congratulations, you can get back the photos either from your memory card or the computer. All you need is a digital camera memory card recovery. Why the questions are important? When you delete photos from your computer or camera card, they are not erased immediately in fact, but only marked as "deleted" and become invisible. If you add new data in, it will reuse the space of the deleted photos to overwrite them, and the deleted photos will be permanently gone. Hence, the protection of the disk or card is very important, which may directly affect the success of recovery.

Step1. Select a recovery mode
Launch the photo recovery on your computer, and choose "Lost File Recovery", which allows you to recover all photos deleted from Mac hard drive, external hard disk, camera, iPod, mobile phone, ect.
