When I deleted what I thought was only a picture, but turned out to be the whole folder, of pictures. I have tried a few different recovery sofware, with them all hooking me as "free", only to find out I have to pay to my "save" my recovered pictures. My question is, does anyone know of a reliable "free" recovery software that I can download, to get my deleted pictures back? If not free, does anyone have a favorite cheapest, yet safest one?

I know... I thought the default was to save everything to the SD card.............................

thanks,
