In the programs folder in my Windows Vista there is a folder named "Digital Image Recovery", which as 4.86gb of photos,which I presume is all my pictures. Can anyone enlighten me as to what it may be connected with and can I delete it? I can't see anything in the Programs and Features Add/Remove that may be connected with it.

Hi all, can I presume from the no postings that no one else as this folder? Can I rephrase my question then,How do I find out what program it is connected with, if it is connected to a program at all.

Hi Chronus, as far as I can see there is no mention of anything. Below is a picture of the properties/general http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y79/anthonyq/DigitalImageRecoveryProperties.jpg

Google does not produce anything either. Something or rather some software has created it. I would back it up to an external drive then delete it from program files and see what happens.

Do you think it would be OK to move it to the desk top and rename it, as I don't think I have 4.86gb spare on anything.

It's CampicRestor.zip, The program is called 'Digital Image Recovery' the free image recovery program that will search all drives and SDcards etc for images, especially useful if you have wiped the drive or card or deleted images you didn't mean to. Program has logo of white circle with red + on it.

I seem to recollect having a program with white circle with red + on it, Which I must have deleted as I don't have it now. Am I right in thinking that I can delete the "Digital Image Recovery" folder from the "Programs" folder as I have all my photos backed up to a external HDD

Yes you can delete it or move it etc. If you uninstalled the program the folder will only be full of the all the images you 'recovered'. Suggest you have a look in Thumbnail view to make sure you don't want any of the images (pics) before you delete.

I have bit the bullet and deleted the file. The folder was so large that it was to large to delete to the Recycle Bin,so it had to be straight delete so here's hoping. Thank you all for your help.

If you have lost your photos and image from memory card then user can restore it from the backup and in case backup is not available then user can try professional photo recovery software.
