    My wife deleted (moved to trash, emptied trash) her entire iphoto picture library. She had no back up.

    Is there any way to get it back? It contained years of family photos.

    thanks.

    You can try something like Data Rescue III, but odds are you aren't going to be able to recover everything. You should use the computer as little as possible or the space will start to get overwritten.

    It looks like both Remo and Stellar do recovery. Do you recommend one over the other? Also are these better than Data Rescue III?

    Remo is good. I like Data Rescue 3 best, Remo second, everything else after.

    Selecting the appropriate Mac data recovery software is no more complex procedure. And, if you ask why, then the answer is very simple. Today there is an alternative such as Kernel for Mac Data Recovery software. Just by downloading and making a proper usage of this software one can successfully carry out the data recovery operation from HFS, HFS+ file systems.

    I believe the OP has resolved his issues, as his post is almost a year old now.
