I've accidentally deleted my iPhoto library. Some pictures were backed up but not all. I downloaded and did a scan using the free version of data recover 2 and disk drill and see there are images to be recovered but I can't see a preview of them. Before I spend $100 that I don't have, would someone please let me know if you recommend either of these programs or if there is something better i should use. Also, should I have been able to see a preview? I just wish I knew if these photos are the ones I have already. I had the apple store set up time machine for me so hopefully I don't do this again.
Oh, it gets better, I emptied the trash bin several times before realizing what I had done.
Thank you so much for any help you can offer,
