I guess I'm screwed. I am really upset about this. A couple of the photos were of my late 80 year old father in one of the few times he enjoyed himself,shortly before he died of vascular dementia last year. He was almost crippled and loved the time spent on the tiller of my sailing boat.
If those photos could be recovered I would be very grateful. I've searched whatever few backups I have in the way of old hard drives and memory cards, but cannot find anything.
