Hello,
I have lost about 180 photos on my laptop due to a system restore ,is there any way of recovering these ?
I have used a number of recovery programs only one found the pictures but I could not open them and no thumbnail appeard.
 
Unfortunately, if the restore wrote over the drive sectors that held your photos, there is no practical way to get them back.

I know that it's closing the barn door after the horse has left, but in the future, please be sure to have backup copies in some other place. I am sorry.
