My wife called me from work today saying that our computer (running Vista) was giving her some error messages today. Something about the hard drive clusters. Well when I got home I noticed that the portable hard drive had connected to the computer had been wiped clean. This portable hard drive had a ton of our family pictures on it. Is there anyway to restore the deleted files?

I noticed that in my wife's profiles recycle bin, there were a bunch of the pictures there. Not all, but a lot. But because of the error messages and the system resources issue on her pofile side, I can't restore the pictures.

Funny thing is that on my profile, the computer runs fine with no error messages.
