Hi
I have got Linux Mint and I had created a folder called Assorted in the pictures folder and in this i ha ddifferent folders for family, friends etc. I was cleaning up the photos and deleting ones i no longer wanted and it seems i must have deleted the Assrted folder itself which had all my photos. Normally when i delete stuff i normally choose the Delete option rather than move to Recycle bin and naturally i have checked Recylcle bin and there is nothing

I had like 700 photos there all very important. How can i recover them. i have not switched off computer or done much since doing so incase it helps

I am in tears right now please help. is there like a system restore in linux or what can i do

You should have under "Accessories" in your menu tab a nifty utility called "Disks". Click on that and you should see anything you want to know about all your disk drives. It told me that I am using ext4.
To err is Human. To blame it on someone else is even more Human.
