If you still have access to the second disk, the obvious solution is to simply copy the data back.

 

If that's not possible, Recuva is one of the go-to options:

As always, make sure you have legal ownership over the data. Recovering data that does not belong to you can be a federal crime.

If the data is critical, then don't scum out on software. Buy ZAR. 

Otherwise try https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva


So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Zero Assumption Recovery

When you absolutely positively have to get all your data back, accept no substitutes.

It shouldn't, but if you want to be certain, unplug your internet before running.

Well, uninstall the Recuva anyway...

 

BTW, if it's *just* pics you need back, ZAR will do image recovery for free (IIRC)

It's good to be skeptical to some degree, and it's good to be aware of privacy and security concerns.

 

But Recuva has no reputation for stealing recovered data. Why would they? As said by @Radium_Angel, if you're super paranoid? Unplug the network while doing the recovery. But really, that is being a little overly paranoid. Especially if the images are harmless (not illegal, not confidential , not financial, etc).
