Deleted photos - I am a such a fool

My daughter took me away on holiday, took many photos as I dont see her often. We were going on a couple of jet skis and achap said to me he would take photos. Great, take many please and I will be grateful for whatever I get. After the jet ski trip the chap returned camera, we went away and decided to check photos, sadly for me the chap had deleted all our photos. Is there anyway I can get photos on the card back again, I am so sad. Any help appreciated, thank you.

Yes. google the FREE product called Recuva. do the 'deep scan'. you will need to insert the memory card in a card reader. best of luck

Will this software work if the photos were lost off a computer, about a year ago may have been deleted but not sure?

Yes, but probably overwritten by now.

Doubtful. Deleted files only stay on a hard drive until they are overwritten by new files. Would be very unlikely they'd still be sitting there after a year.

But it can't hurt to run the program and give it a try.

Thanks for that. Will give it a go.
