    gone means gone. unless you want to engage a data recovery company to see if they could salvage anything out of it.

    anyway, I use the bundled Photoloader that uploads the photos automatically.

    If you have Norton utilities and a CF card reader, you may be able to recover the pictures on the CF card.

    Don't do anything foolish like formatting until you've tried this! Don't use the CF card to take any more pictures, otherwise your pictures may be overwritten!

    Check out this thread. There are a few useful shareware links if you do not have Norton Utilities.

    I believe you should be able to recover using a card reader and a the cf card. (perhaps using the camera in place of the card reader is possible)

    when you delete generally the data is not permanently erased, just that the space occupied is now released and available for use. so if you did not take any shots after you deleted the folders you probably have a good chance of recovery using software from the net.

    it works! Just tried it, it didn't recover all the images, but at least revived 56 out of 64. That's a pretty good hit rate!

    Thanks for recommending this freeware, Sphoenix.

    My son having a haircut, note the aunty barber, very meaty



    A very satisfying look after the haircut

    To be continued .....

    A flower shot using the QV2900 long zoom.



    A macro shot of a flower the size of a 10 cents coin. Lastly,



    A partial recovered shot, can still savaged it by cropping.

    With this software, if u realise your mistake early and recover straightaway, it is as good as uploading to the pc. Once again, thanks.

    one suggestion, change the saturation setting to high if you want brighter colors.
