    Hello-

    I was taking shots on my Pentax k-01 and accidentally deleted all the photos I had just taken that day. I immediately took the memory card out of the camera so that I wouldn't overwrite any deleted files. My question is - how do I get the files back? From what I have read online the files are still there.

    All the shots I took that day were RAW.

    I have already tried to use Wondershare's data recovery and although it restored files that I could see in thumbnail form whe I tried to view them in Lightroom or Photoshop an error message was displayed.

    You will need recovery software that is capable of decoding Pentax's raw file format. I doubt there's much in the way of freeware that can do that. You may have to pony up and buy something.

    You can try your local data recovery service.
