LaCie Introduces 1TB Rugged XL
The new Rugged XL 1-TB external hard drive from LaCieStorage specialist LaCie has released an XL model in its Rugged series of external hard drives. The new rugged drive has been designed by Neil Poulton.
Featuring a 1TB internal 3.5in hard-drive covered by an aluminium caddy, the Rugged XL is encased inside a rubber sleeve for additional safety. An internal rubber bumper inside the casing prevents the drive for shifting even if it is dropped or knocked around. The drive also comes with eSATA, USB2.0, and a bunch of software.
LaCie has priced the Rugged XL at $160 for the US market and surprisingly, at £160 including VAT for the UK market. Not considering the exchange rate difference, the XL is still steeply priced when compared to other 1TB external drives currently on the market – extra packaging or otherwise.

Well, long story short.
Lots of photos.
Give camera to drunk friend.
No photos.
Can it be recovered? If it helps we took about 30 photos after it so I imagine if I do get any back it won't be em all, but is there a way to get some back? My Mum took the camera to Rome, be nice if she could get them printed.

Yep, you can use some apps that are designed for HDDs.

Used it for the HDD, me thinks.

When you delete something normally, it normally just hides away on the storage waiting to be over written.
That means that your photos are there it's just that a few 30-40 of them will be unrecoverable.
Use this program:
Made by the trusty people who made ccleaner...:)

I've used an app call "recover my files" before on a CF card and it worked a treat.

In the end I found something on with lots of downloads and decent feedback (as my god there are some sketchy apps out there...) and I have most back, thanks for the help anyway. Might try another run or two just to see if anything new turns up
