|How bad do you need THAT picture? 233kb isn't much of a picture.|
If you lost a bunch of pictures, STOP all activity that might create or revise files on that drive ("C:" or whatever)!!!!! Especially DO NOT surf the web if "MyDocuments" is on your C: drive!(unless you did something to move it, it is!) Avoid using that computer (or OS) as much as possible.
If you have already looked for them in the Recycle Bin, download the trial version of GetDataBack for NTFS (find with Google) with another computer (or a different operating system if you have a multiboot computer). Then (if not a multiboot computer) put the hard drive from your computer into the other computer and scan it with GetDataBack (much easier: you could also replace it into the case of an external hard drive). You may need to get someone to help with this. You can recover your pictures one at a time for free.
Good luck Valerie. Post back your results.
