Blogosphere to the Rescue?!?

Yesterday in attempting to MOVE some images to CD, freeing space on an external hard drive, I lost a 10 year sports card image gallery archive that I use as a reference library.

My exacts actions were to:

1) Highlight folder
2) Edit- MOVE to E: (CD/DVD Drive)
3) Write files to CD

The folder is on the CD but it is empty AND the source folder is empty. Nothing was in the Recycle Bin and a system search for one of the sub folders AND a specific jpeg, resulted in nothing being found.

In looking at both my HP System Recovery and Windows XP Recovery tools, I can't seem to find an option to simply restore the external hard drive without restoring the whole system which I don't want to do.

Any ideas guys?

The best bet is to use date file recovery software. They usually cost under $100 but some companys will actually allow you to download a demo for a limited time.

Here is a ranking of the current top softwares done by TopTenReviews.com: http://data-recovery-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

This is DiskInternals free demo link, if you decide to use this then you will want to download the Uneraser version:

Good luck, I hope everything works out for you.
