asked Apr 20, 2017 in General Discussions by Morris

Can I ask for some help. Last night I was viewing some of my old photos, but there are few folders of 2013 holiday trip, birthday party photos of 2015 and friends get-together photos of 2016 were missing from my external hard drive. I have no idea what had happened or why they have lost. Another problem is that some of the photos are not displaying properly. I do not know, there may be corruption on the hard disk. Please help me.
Thanks in advance,

In this case you have to stop using your external hard drive and do not add any new data on it and then use suitable photo recovery software. You can find lots of photo recovery software online. But among them I would recommend you to use Digital Media recovery tool that is designed to recover media files like photos, videos and audio files from hard drive, USB flash drive, external hard drive, memory cards and other data storage devices.

You can download the software from here –

This software offer free trial version in which you can scan and preview the recoverable files within the software and if you are able to preview your lost or missing photos you can then proceed further to purchase the full version and easily recover photos.

May my suggestion could help you.
