    On accident, we have deleted the last download of about 200 photos and have also deleted them off the camera card as well. My question is, there a way to recover them from a deleted or recycle bin on the iPad? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    not on the ipad.

    you can run a recovery software on the SD card to try and recover the deleted files.

    If you had these pictures last time you synced with iTunes, they should be backed up and you could restore your iPad from that back up.

    Recover from SD card

    If you do not have a backup the option is to use a recovery software.

    If you are using Windows, Recuva is a free software and easy to use to recover files off the camera's memory card.

    horror story

    I just had a similar horror story last evening. I am on holidays. I was making a huge selection of images from my camera 16Gb SD card, en had to go to the bathroom and when I came back and took the iPAD in my hands to resume I realized that my thumb was laying on the "delete all" and then "confirm" button leading to the complete lost of the pictures (that were not even yet imported!)

    I am now really desperate. I will try to find a shop where I could by another SD card in other to try for a SD recovery tool from PC or Mac once back home (then of course I should n use it meanwhile). In the future I will make sure my SD card will be in read only mode when mnting it on the iPad!!!!


    For sure, I can not take the pictures bak. It was the trip on my life, in Costa Rica.


    I am very disappointedthat Apple let the delete/confirm buttons that easy and close of each other to "delete by accident" just whe taking an ipAD in hands. Even more frustrating form the IT guru that I am.

    I stopped using the SD card right after the unexpected delete then went for an access to the PC of the hotel reception, borrowing a Maxwell USB CardReader from a canopynadventure team not far away. I downloaded Pandora Recovery (free) and after about an hour of computation (using the full scan of the so-vallée brosse mode) recovered my hundreds of deleted pics. I stored them back in the SD card (they can not be seen nor by the camera nor by the iPad due to the change of name but are back for sure). So glad I made it! only a "summary of the day" video was finally lost.


    On the iPAD side, I notice a perfect behaviour when putting my old SD Extreme 1Gb in "lock" mode: the delete options is then disabled. But strangely enough if I do the same with a Sandisk 16Gb ultra, the iPad is telling me that it may be corrupted and refuse to access it.

    iPad app??

    Nickso,

    Can you please post the name of the photo recovery app that worked for you on the iPad? I'm currently in Haiti and don't have access to a new memory card or other devices that I have read about on other forums, so it would be great if you could recommend an app that works.

    Thanks!

    There is afaik no such application for the iPad (except maybe if you jailed break yours). The Pandora software I used was on PC. I had no such equipment with me in Costa rica but went to the reception of an hotel.
