I am going to ask, are the photos still on the cell? Did she actually "cut" & "copy" or just "copy"&"paste" to the new folder on the computer?

If the computer has not been turned off after the mistake of deletion you can go to the command prompt in Windows and type: undel c:windows/dcim2 

have not used a DOS command in years so I hope that was the right syntax.

UNDELETE [ edit source | edit beta ]

External - DOS 5.0 and above Restores files previously deleted with the DEL command.

UNDELETE [[drive:][path]filename]

So in your case it would be:

undelete c: windows dcim2

if your wife placed it under her my documents folder it changes to

Undelete C: windows/mydocuments/dcim2

If you are trying to recover files from your phone see:

The short answer is if they were deleted from your internal phone memory - no; if they were deleted from your SD card - maybe.  If they were deleted from your PC try what Elector suggested or use one of the many free apps available to recover deleted files; I use Recuva.

Also have you looked in the recycle bin on your PC. All deleted files go there 1st as a safeguard
