Specs: Windows 7
Help! I took pics of my Grandmothers 100th birthday, on a micro disk, cropped & saved them. Now I need them back into original format for large canvas pics. What can I do, or what program do I need? Thank you!!

✔ Best Answer
You broke the first rule. Don't edit the original. Work from a copy.
If you don't have any work or temp files there is little chance of recovering the original.

... not to worry I did'nt know that you could award "best answer" I just thought it was done by "random bott" ..... not bothered!

... "I'm glad you're sorted" thats the best answer.

wizard-fred,
Not sure if you saw the follow-up reply to my help message, but I was given this information and it worked perfectly! Just in case you ever get the question again, my picture was retrieved in less than 5 seconds!

... on the micro disk!

So nice to know that there are still rules that can be broken.....and fixed! I am beyond thrilled!

Kelly

PS Is there a way for me to give a second "Best Answer" Award?

Just remember that although Recuva did the trick this time, it all depends on how much you have used the computer since then. Areas of the HD can get overwritten or partly overwritten, so it might not always work out so well. Glad it did the trick but don't bank on it in future - play safe and always work on a "copy".

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Derek,
Thanks for your reply. What I don't think you understood, was that I used Recuva on the microdisk, from my camera, not the computer itself. That was what made this so amazing....but you are absolutely right, I should have worked from a copy. Lesson learned!

Thanks again for replying.

Kelly

Aha, I came here from another link/topic (about Best Answers) and made a wrong assumption. Very good work and an interesting approach to this issue.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Keepsmiling,
So glad I helped us both! And, I couldn't agree more...the recuva answer from Mavis007, truly was a gift from God. I learned a huge lesson about working from a copy... I hope you did too. Good luck in all your future photo efforts!
