Lost my pictures-maybe
You are right , Photo bucket resized the images size to save storage space and for fast download.
The only solution to go for data recovery expert, as your hard drive is completly crashed and not getting detected. If it is getting detected you can take help of some good photo recovery software.
Even you go to data recovery company, they will not charge much as you need to retrieve only very little data.
