Help - how can I recover deleted files on Microdrive?!

I bought a 2.2 gB Microdrive for my hols and in the evenings often reviewed images using my PocketPC. Some images were deleted - due to being out of focus or poorly composed.

One evening I deleted one image only to discover I'd lost the subsequent 5 including 2 I was very pleased with - grr. Now since I have come back I have not formatted the card.

Hence is there any software that can recover deleted files? I only used up about 1.2 gB of the card. Files were only deleted in camera or on my PocketPC

Drive Rescue may be able to do it if you can access the card as a drive through a card reader.

Thanks for the link to "Drive Rescue" - it couldn't recover the files I wanted but these were taken early in my holiday and there were numerous deletions either in camera or on my PocketPC subsequent to accidentally deleting the two files I am looking to recover. I did successfully recover some files as a test that I deleted in camera at the weekend - so I have learnt something useful. Hopefully Luke will forward a working copy of rescuepro to see if that is able to reconstruct the deleted files. Although "Drive Rescue" could recover the files I couldn't open due to unexpected errors in the jpg.

Cheers

100% relieved I remembered reading this link as I managed to delete whole card of holiday pics this morning. The Drive Rescue worked a treat - thumbnails of all (about 6 won't open fully) - thanks a million.
