What can I do to rescue data deleted by pressing "Shift+ Delete" on Windows 7?

Using Shift+Delete to remove files/folders bypasses the recycle bin which is your normal means of recovering accidentally deleted files. You can go to download.com and search for file recovery programs. Some are available that will search your hard drive and can maybe recover what you lost. It is important to do so as quickly as possible because once files are permanently deleted on the hard drive, the sectors that they occupied are no longer protected and can be overwritten by any program or file.

This post remind me of my unfortunately similar experience..
Well,I'm afraid that you have to use 3rd party software to finish the photo recovery.But what I want to say is that we should take the lesson from this and form a habit to do the regular backup for precious memory.
I did't backup before my losing because iTunes was too complicated to use for me.Now I do my backup regularly via a more simple but efficient tool.I think it could help you a lot!See details in this tutorial of How to transfer photos/pictures from iPad to PC. Good luck!
