i have accidently deleted a folder containing some photos, must have gone into the recycle bin and has now been emptied.
i have tried to recover the folder using file recover and a couple of other programs but have had no luck.
is there anything i can do to get them back?

Hello braybould i'm wizzy and welcome to Geeks To Go.

You can recover your photos and will need some data recovery software.You can use PC Inspector File Recovery which can be found at the link below.

I like the GetDataBack software by http://www.runtime.org
It'll tell you what it can recover for free - but last time I checked it was $80 US to recover it.

Usually if it can't find it, then the data has probably been overwritten.
Try the stuff that Broni listed, if it doesn't recover it, then you're looking at expensive data recovery by professionals.
