Dont worry, hard drive recovery is not as difficult as you thought. You can do it by yourself without paying data recovery lab expensive fees. Read on for how to recover lost pictures.
First of all, stop using your Toshiba hard drive.
When the photos are deleted, or memory card is formatted, the photos actually data are still stored on the memory card, just that they are not inaccessible, because system has lost the entry point, and the space is marked free to use.
So when you use memory card, it is likely that data will be saved to the space where lost photos located. This will make the photos not recoverable. That's why it is very important not to use the memory card after photos are lost. Even if the memory card is used, stop using it now.
