We geeks have a warped sense of humor. It comes from watching the obvious sail past too many heads and having a mind that sometimes functions on a systems analysis level. Don't worry about it. I crack up every time I see reference to a certain movie and the phrase "What we have he-ahhh... --- ... is a ... Failure... to kummunikate." That seems to be a meta-statement about life.

No assumptions made here.

Instead of ascertaining the facts you made an assumption. Not me. I guess you should have taken your own advice and got the facts before making that assumption.

I don't post much here anymore because of the results in threads like these. It gets old watching posters give useless advice then trying to make it someone else's responsibility. Own up.

And, yeah. It's funny.

Edit: As Harry says - We geeks have a warped sense of humor.

No kidding?!

Like that wasn't already mentioned?

My apologies for expressing my enjoyment at the things that happened in this thread. It is never meant to be personal, but always seems to end up being so.

Any mod may delete my posts as they wish.

You can try a software called PhotoRec. I've even tried it myself and I was able to recover all sorts of pictures and other files. I heard that it can recover deleted pictures from SD cards and USB drive too. Hope it helps you out too.

No. It was already stated by the OP that there were no backups. I simply mistyped. Nice try though.

Isn't that just for photo files?

OP, have you checked the recycle bin?
