    I didn't realize that my photos file was in the recycle bin, when I emptied until I closed the window.

    Is there a way to recover my un-replaceable photos?

    I tried recuva and got some photos but not the ones I really wanted. I'm not sure how to start TestDisk

    When I downloaded TestDisk 7.1, there were several .exe files in the folder:
    testdisk_win.exe
    qphotorec_win.exe
    photorec_win.exe
    fidentify_win.exe
    I don't know what to do from here.

    Run the testdisk_win.exe file (double-click it) then follow the guide at my link in post #3.

    On a side note, there's no excuse in this day and age to not have backups of your data. There's free cloud storage and backup services and USB drives are inexpensive. In fact multiple backups using the 3-2-1 practice are the way to go: https://www.partitionwizard.com/clone-disk/backup-strategy.html Between malware/cryptolocker threast that lock you out of files, hardware failures, theft,user accidents, and disasters it's pretty much guaranteed users will at some point lose a copy of their data.

    Triple6, All the choices are different in TestDisk 7.1 than the ones in Testdisk 6.1. These are the choices in the first window:

    - Create a new log file
    - Append information to a log file
    - Don't record anything

    Choose Create A Log, but any choice is really OK, its just for a log file.

    Triple6, the problem still is that the guide is for Testdisk 6.11 which I cannot find and the only one I could find is 7.1 and that guide is different. There is no P NTFS choice for me to make from the new program
