Deleted JPGS on a CD

By cccgsmith ·
I accidentally deleted lots of JPGS on a CD when moving them from the hard drive. I was cleaning up the hard drive and thought it was selected when I hit DELETE--unfortunately the CD drive was selected. I immediately saw my mistake and hit CANCEL, but it was too late and I had already deleted the JPGS on the hard drive. I have tried a couple of recovery programs to no avail--only thumbnail db and a large .ptn file is found, which I cannot open. Any suggestions??

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:


There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer". .

And give use some more information. What OS is in use here and how was the CD Made? Normally CD's are Read Only and the OS itself can have no effect on a CD.
