I try to all my editing in Lightroom. This time I did not. By accident I hit the delete key. My hard work is gone.
Please tell me that they still are stored in a safe place so I can get them back.

On a Windows machine, the image files should be in the Recycle Bin, and your originals are still where they started. But whatever editing you did to them within jAlbum is gone - that info is stored in a sidecar file, and when you delete an object from the project, that file is dumped.

This is why there's a confirmation dialog when you delete objects.

What would you suggest? Two confirmation dialog boxes, with the second saying, "Are you really, really sure?" Or should deletions not actually delete anything?

If you ask me, a Photo Recovery Software is not the solution to the problem. The solution is a backup is a backup is a backup. I mean, we are in the year 2020 and people don't have one single backup of their unique files? Boy oh boy :-)
