Recycle bin

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Recycle bin

Hi all, sorry if this has been covered before but I did search before posting....

After editing photos in RAW (this is all new to me) I have been sending the original unedited photos to the recycle bin and then saving the ones I want to a seperate file (windows 8).

After moving the pics to that new file they seem to have been automatically converted to jpg. I did not request that conversion and wanted to make some further changes after moving the picture but now that it's in jpeg I can't.

"No problem" thinks I, I'll just fish the original out of the recycle bin but the photos are not there in the bin.

In short: how do I recover photos from the bin?



You might have to use a recovery software.  Something like Piriform's Recuva or CG Security's Test Disk, both free.  Try and do as little as possible as the photo files might be overwritten.
