Took photos but accidently press "Delete" on iPod Touch? Press "Restore" and lost all your photos and files? Is there any way to recover deleted photos from iPod touch 4G?
If you have backed up your iPod Touch with iTunes before restoration or at least synced your iPod Touch once, you can use some programs to get the deleted photos back.
