“I have accidentally deleted some pictures from my CF Card. i have realized it immediately, and just a few seconds later downloaded and run a CF Card recovery software (from another disk, of course). however, it was unable to help me: it does see some of the missing filenames, but it cannot restore the contents from CF Card since it says the data has already been overwritten by another file. this another file has been present there for days, however! it was already there when i deleted the photos!”
