    I am pulling my hair out. I thought the transfer completed to my external hard drive so I deleted my photos and emptied my recycle bin. I have been attempting system restores (unsuccessful) and file recovery software all day long. It seems like it is doing nothing but giving me a couple pictures along with porn. I am so frustrated. There has to be a legitimate way to recover my entire Picture folder? Please help! Thank you!

    If you want to recover data you have to use some data recovery tool, I suggest you to use Kernel for Windows Data Recovery as i had success with this in the past. When you delete the data and emptied the Recycle Bin also you lost the access to the data while the data is still available on the system. Only the index entry which points to the location of the data is deleted. Data Recovery software will help you to recover this data.

    I just tried the Kernel for Windows Data Recovery and I got an error "unable to execute file" when I try to run it. I seem to be having nothing but problems with these data recovery programs. Any other suggestions? My concern is every time I attempt to run one I am overwriting files too

    I think trying to do System Restore has done the damage, As once the data is deleted it is recommended to stop using the drive any more to increase the chances of recovery as once the data is overwritten it would be difficult to recover data. As far as I know about Kernel for Windows it worked for me all the time. Did you downloaded the latest version of the software?
