I installed mac cleaner and by mistake I have deleted ALL of my pictures! Everything was inside iPhoto.

 

I am thinking to run Data Rescue 3 so to try recover all the files I lost. The question is: Is it better to install and run Data Rescue to the machine I lost my files or is it better to remove the HD it has, put it to an external HD Case and run Data Rescue from another Mac ?

    Without a guestion, you want to run from another machine. Whenever computers run, they are creating new files and adding data to old files.  Both cause deleted file to be over written with new data.
