Deleted Picture Retrieval from PC
There are two ways to delete a picture on a PC. First, delete the picture from the location where it is present and it goes to the recycle bin. If the picture is present in the recycle bin, it can be restored very easily but if it is deleted from there itself or it is deleted permanently (shift+Del), then how will you retrieve pictures deleted from a personal computer?. Is that file recoverable? Answer is yes, of course we can recover pictures deleted or lost by using photo recovery software. File deletion in PC’s is very often sometimes by mistake we format the memory and then realizes that there was a file we wanted to keep.
A common misconception in peoples mind is that when we delete the picture it will be permanently gone. But in reality it remains unharmed until and unless it is not overwritten. How it is possible? Whenever you delete any picture it deletes only the reference pointer pointing to that picture but the picture remains as it is in its location. The space occupied by this picture marked as available and whenever a new picture comes then system scans only the files in the memory which don’t have a pointer to pointing them and overwrite that file only. So whenever your picture accidentally gets deleted then the first thing you have to do is you should stop using the system. Then download photo recovery software so that you can recover back your deleted pictures. What the software does is, it scans the whole memory where the pictures are located and search only those pictures which don’t have a pointer. After successful scanning it shows all the deleted pictures in front of you. Using this software to recover images from flash card also with ease.
