MacKeeper to the rescue
MacKeeper found my photos of masks from 2 years ago.
Inadvertently, I deleted, then emptied Trash. How to get my photos back?
I fired up MacKeeper and set it to work finding deleted images that had not yet been overwritten on my hard drive. When I got back from my afternoon nap, the list of rescuable items was HUGE! I could preview them to hunt for the ones I wanted and retrieve them with a click. Pretty nifty.
