Re: photos accidentally put in trash and emptied trash. help!

#1 rule regardless of what software you use to recover them is to immediately STOP USING THE DRIVE so that the sectors don't get written over.  The files are all still there, it's just the OS telling itself that it can start using the space for newly generated data.  Obviously you need to use the drive during recovery, but not doing ANYTHING else with it in the meantime GREATLY increases the chances of recovery.   Absolutely don't do any photo editing (with drive caching) or copy any files to it.
