Hi Roger,

I am in the process of scanning some very old family photos and
writing them to CD. I have all ready wtitten a load to one CD and
I was about to write some more before attempting an Easymint install.

Some of the lost files are on the CD but I don't know how many more
have gone and I would prefer not to repeat the slow process of scanning
them if there was some way to undelete them.
