    Report the posting to a moderator and have them move it to the DOS/MAC section. You'll probably get a better response.

    The only way I know of is to use Norton Utilities(or something similar). Norton has a feature called un-erase, that will allow retrieving files, as long as they haven't been overwritten. You needed to quit using the computer immediately after files were deleted, especially for internet. Browser dumps the cache every so often, which means that files are being overwritten.
    Good luck!

    Just read your other post (locked one).
    Hook the camera back up to the mac. If you didn't empty the trash before, the pics may still be there, when camera is hooked up. It sounds crazy, but camera WILL have to be hooked up to check this.
    Good luck!

    I heard that you can retrieve deleted files if you did not use Secure Trash.
    Has to do with using X11 program.
