PhotoRec is a tool that can be used to recover "accidentally" deleted photos and files. This tool can also be used to recover data after a drive was reformatted.

Is it a good idea to remove & re-pair my devices on a set interval (thinking that this is changing the Bluetooth PIN) No, it might not be a good idea. There is an exchange of information during the pairing that can be exploited by someone eavesdropping the radio communication link. Please see the excellent presentation by Dominic Spill ...
