What the FTK?

I suffered a self-inflicted blunder back in April. On the tail end of our trip to Japan and Hong Kong back in April, I transferred my photos from the camera to the netbook, deleted the photos from the camera, then turned around and found the photos weren't on the netbook.

Long story short... I was seriously bummed. I resigned myself to the very real possibility that the photos were gone. But knowing that not all hope was lost, I popped out the memory card, put it safely aside, and popped in another card.

A couple days ago, I emailed my friend David (he does computer forensics for a living) and he pointed me to FTK. Climbed the app's learning curve and voilĂ :

Photos restored. Thanks, David.
