Losing someone else's pictures is a horrible experience, because in the best of cases you'll have to go through the awkward situation of asking them to pose again for the pictures you lost, and in the worst, the moment captured in each photo will be lost forever, as is the case of wedding pictures. It'll be impossible to recreate that moment and the joy or original feelings involved in it. Though it may seem hard to believe, this kind of situation does occur. What are you supposed to do if this happens to you? Don't panic. If you want to know if there's any chance to recover those pictures, you first need to answer the following questions:
Did you store new information on the PC, more specifically, on your local C drive?
Did you use the camera to take new pictures using the same memory card?
If the answer to these questions is NO, congratulations, you can retrieve your pictures either form your memory card or PC. To achieve this, all you need is a photo recovery program for the digital camera's memory card. Why are the questions above important? When you delete pictures from your PC or camera's memory card, they are actually not immediately removed, they are marked as "deleted" and become invisible. However, if you keep on adding new photos or data, the space previously occupied by these deleted photos will be overwritten, and these will be permanently deleted. Therefore, protecting your drive or memory card is very important after losing data, as this directly affects the chances of success of the recovery process.
