    Well, I had some photos of my pets in RAW format (.CR2), and in Camera Raw I saved them as jpegs, so I deleted my CR2's and emptied the trash.
    Then I used the program "ResizeMe" to resize the photos to 50% of the original size, but they resized them less than 25% of the size! So now all of my photos are super small, except for the first one that was on the list to be resized!
    So, I was wondering if there was a way I could get back my files I deleted from the trash about 30 minutes ago. I'm trying to run StellarPhoenix right now, but I haven't read great things about the program.

    Any help is appreciated!

    You could try Data Rescue, I've heard good things about it.

    Weird, I actually already have that program and forgot about it. :p
    They're both running now, but it'll take a while, so I'll go off to bed.
    When I get the results in the morning, I'll let you know how they both worked out!

    Thanks for the reminder! :p

    Don't have a time capsule to you? I no with my video editing some of my files are 13GB in size ( this is the original source file ) They are very large, until i can afford some form of external storage (usb etc) i am stuck with that! It has saved me alot of times.

    I do, but I don't use it too often.
    Also, neither of the programs worked, so I'll just have to upscale and lose some quality.
