    ...I deleted the My Pictures folder with all my pictures in it by accident. And emptied my recycle bin...


    :(


    Is there any way to get it back through the registry? I'm kind of in shock right now. I can't believe it.

    To my knowledge you haven't deleted it but to save it the best don't save anything else you your computer. Because the computer doesn't delete stuff until it needs the space so I think it will be salvageable.

    YUou can get software or you could get a recovery expert to do it. With something like this maybe software would be enough.

    i'v never been in this situation, but i know you can buy disk recovery software....(not sure if theres a good enough free one)...that will recover stuff from your trash bin. Like Daniel said although its deleated it is technicaly still on your hard disk.
