About 2 months ago, I deleted one photo that is very emotionally close to me... it was of a friend of mine, female friend who died and I need that specific photo and I accidentally deleted it 2 months ago...

Please, just tell me if I have the slightest chance of recovering it?

My OS is OS X Lion.

If you deleted the file 2 months ago and presumably continued to use the Mac. Well your chances of recovering the file is about nil. Its long gone.

So there is not even 0.1% chance?

Because I may have overstated the 2 months, it could have been shorter period... but maybe they are still there, so which is THE BEST program that works wonders about this kind of stuff?

Please, please, anyone, this is really important for me.

I really doubt there is anything you can do, but I would suggest using Time Machine in the future to prevent this.

That's a good question. And if the photo was in iPhoto, look inside iPhoto's trash too.
