It was the only copy left. Many of these photos were really important for our parents. But, I did have checked the computer Recycle Bin and found no these deleted PNG photos there. Were all these photos completely wiped with that deleted partition? If not, what can I do now to recover files from deleted partition? I really need your help. Thanks a lot!
