so i was moving pictures from my hard drive (E: partition on my hard drive) to a portable hard drive to clear up some space...

 

i THOUGHT all the sub folders in a "main" folder had copied when i clicked the delete button...

 

of course the contents were more than the recycle bin could hold so when it asked i wanted to "permanently delete" i clicked yes...

 

I DONT HAVE ALL OF MY PICTURES!  arrrgh....

 

i havent done anything to mess with the E: partition (format, saved, moved) so the files should theoretically still be where i left them but i need some way to access those files, now that there are no names associated with them...

 

can anyone help?

What operating system are you working with? So we can move this topic to the right forum.

I dont think that much can be done if you emptied the recycle bin, which it sounds like you did
