How to Recover Deleted Photos from Windows 10

Accidentally deleted photos on external hard drive

"Last Sunday, I attempted to create a slide show which I want to give my wife as our 10th wedding anniversary gift in Windows Media Center based on pictures that were stored on an external hard drive connected to a wireless router. I incorrectly thought that the files had been copied to the Picture Library on my main hard drive. I didn't want them there and so I stupidly deleted the files from the Picture Library. The result was that the pictures were deleted from the external drive. Is there any efficient photo recovery solution that can help me recover deleted photos from Windows 10? They are all the pictures we have taken for all these years. My wife must be extremely sad if I can’t get them back."
