I'm not sure why this hapend (maybe someone do this!?) but to recover yorfiles: there is a open source software named "test disk" you can download it  from www.cgsecurity.org and use photorec to recover your files (you must have a card reader). 
I hope this helps...

Can photos be retrieved once the SD card has been formatted? i had selected the "protect option" & those photos still were deleted.


I had success with this
1. Do not save any new file to memory card.
2. Connect your card to computer. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in My Computer.
3. Download photo recovery software, recommended one is 001 picture recovery (simply because i was using it and it worked)
http://www.001-software.com/picture-recovery/
4. Install and open the photo recovery program, select your memory drive, and click 'Start' button to start scanning process which will find your deleted photos.

I accidently deleted pictures from the memory card. Is there any way to retrieve them?


First things first: DO NOT take any more pictures with the memory card that you want to recover pictures from in case you may quite possibly ruin your chances of photo recovery.


Then take a try this photo recovery software (also recover videos and music) to get them recovered. It should recover your files without problem.
note that:
1. Before photo recovery, better stop using the device where your lost digital photos located.
2. You'd better not install the photo recovery program or save recovered files to the card drive that you want to recover data from.

How do we retrieve deleted pictures from recycle bin?


You can try to recover pictures deleted from Recycle Bin with Asoftech recovery software:

It uses unique modern algorithms to recover files that other software either recovers incorrectly or is unable to detect.

I have deleted photos by error will be to recover


It's no problem at all to get them back. Do not take any more pictures, and remove the card from the camera to lessen the chance of you overwriting some important pictures or videos. There are VERY many freeware software options available to help you recover your files. Please see this blog article that reviews several of the better freeware recovery programs that you can download. You may need to use a card reader with these programs though.

All the download links listed in the article are available through CNET. This was to primarily ensure through CNET's verification process that these would be malware free software, and to also give you a chance to read user reviews on the software before downloading.

How to retrieve my deleted videos/pictures


I had a case when I accidentally mirrored my drive and overwritten ALL my files. I tried to download a software "RecoverMyFiles v3.9" and it worked perfectly for me! In your case, you can still recover all of those deleted files of yours as long as they're still intact ( meaning to say the drive isn't formatted ). All the deleted files could be found on a hidden folder called RECYCLER.

The drawback when you recovered your files, you have to open each of the files you recovered 'cause it won't provide you all the file names before you recently named your files.
