    If the photographs are very important then you should talk to a data recovery specialist company. They will diagnose your hard drive to check whether the hard drive is dead or not. Then only they will be able to tell whether is it possible to recover the photographs from it or not. If still you need any help you can tell me.

    Well, if the HDD is still corrupted, I doubt you will be able to recover anything. Fix the HDD then try to recovery your missing files.

    Using Kernel for windows data recovery software you can easily recover your lost, deleted or corrupted data from hard drive or other storage device having windows file system.
