Undoing a bad pictures management

What's up guys,
I need one of you wizards to help me on this one. It's not a FCP question but i figured that one of you know the answer.

One of my friend do a lot of photo-shoot, for events promotion. Yesterday he was doing some pictures management on his Macbook and he did a mistake. He trashed about 10 000 pictures from about hundreds of different folders thinking he had them backed-up. The good news is that he didn't emptied the trash so he still have the pictures on his laptop but he wanna know if is there an option like ''on windows'' where you can throw back files from trash in there original folders.

Thx guys.

hello...

[François-michel nolin maffolini] "It's not a FCP question but i figured that one of you know the answer. "

that's ok - this isn't an fcp forum...

unless throwing away the files is the last thing you did (in which case you can hit ctrl-z to undo the trash action), then no - you are stuck and have to rebuild dir structures manually...

also consider time machine if running leopard - it could help you get back the structure when it was correct previously...
