Morgoth, avoid these situations with a good back up plan.
The conventional wisdom by tech experts on backups is known as the 3-2-1 method.

Basically you want:

3 copies of any data you don't want to lose
2 different mediums it's stored on (so 2 different drives in your computer, for example)
1 copy kept offsite, to prevent against disaster. Such as Morgoth casting your drive into the outer void as revenge.

Glad you could recover those photos.
