Yes, magneto-optical media are meant to be re-writeable. That is the reason for the write-protect slide at one corner; it's there to prevent accidental deletion.
Writing over data on an MO drive is slower than reading data because of how the regions must be erased first then re-written.

Deleted files by accident


To recover lost, inaccessible and permanently deleted files from Windows partitions, there are several free tools available but they don't provide guarantee to success in every case. Kernel for Windows is a robust third party software that efficiently retrieves lost, deleted, damaged and inaccessible data from Windows partitions having FAT & NTFS file systems.

Grandson deleted all pictures can i retrieve


You can often successfully recover deleted files from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended asoftech photo recovery as it saved my life many times.

I had pictures that were saved on the internal hard disk. I went to format and reformatted and my pictures were gone. I'm trying to recover the pics. Is there any way to do this?


The possibility of recovering any pictures after a re-format is remote. If nothing else has been written or saved to the hard drive at all...this is very important, then the possibility of recover is greater. There are companies which will recover all data for a price, do a search on the Internet and ask for prices. There may be a program from somewhere which could recover the data. When the hard drive is formatted, the data should still be there, only pointers are erased. If you have written any data at all to the drive since format, just move on is my advice.
If this is a pc, then there are programs to recover from a format. If it is an internal hard drive for the camera, it may be harder to recover.
