Just a quick note to say please add "its OK I will delete it if you dont like it" to your list of10 great lies.

You can delete all the pictures on a memory card or hard drive and I can get them back - easy.  There is plenty of software out there to do this so please dont fall for that one.

Its a big giant porkie....

He's trying to say that when a photographer says he's deleting a photo on a memory card - he's lying

Potential nip-slip images (or worse) that the model doesn't want shown to the world.

Hence she thinks the photographer is being a 'gent' by deleting them.

Must be a bit desperate if recovering files from a big hard drive !.

If the image is deleted from the memory card or the hard drive then it is possible that the file will be overwritten. If a memory card is filled up then it will have been overwritten.

OP - what you are saying is correct, to a degree, there are exceptions.

Or you could assume the photographer will keep to his/her word.

You can have a card that is years old and put it through image recovery softwear and it will bring up shot you have taken from 10 years ago!
Even if the card has been full and formated countless time......

Formatting will not matter. What matters is if where the file was stored has been overwritten. If it has and the old data has been overwritten, how can you get the overwritten file back ? The data has been destroyed.

I always let models delete images they are unhappy with due to 'wardrobe malfunctions' and the like. I'm aware the act of deleting them doesn't render them irretrievable if someone has the right equipment. However, I'm a man of my word and deleted means deleted in as much as the images are withdrawn from the folder and not used or knowingly archived.

As there is, on my part, no intent to deceive I consider myself a gentleman, not a liar and I firmly beleive the people I work with will vouch for that.

Very difficult to fully "delete" a file most good recovery software will usualy find somthing, all deleting does is make it difficult to find, Think of it as cutting connection to it, Sometimes likened to cutting a bridge down, recovery software just rebuilds that bridge.
