When this happens to you, what should you do to rescue them, especially when you're running Windows 8 on your computer? Don't worry. If you're the unlucky one, you're at the right place.

If you've emptied Recycle Bin after you deleted those photos on your computer, or you just deleted them bypass Recycle Bin, the way to restore them from Recycle Bin is a dead end. You need a third-party photo recovery tool to help you retrieve lost photos from Windows 8. Thus the program should be compatible with Windows 8. Don't have one?
