View Full Version : retrieving photos from card that have been deleted accidentally

06-22-2006, 12:20 PM
I accidentally deleted photos from my digital cameras card. I haven't taken any photos since and I was told that it could be a way for me to retrieve them off the card. Is that at all possible? The type of camera I have is a Optimus MPEG4 Digital Video Camera.

Someone help please!!!!

Try PhotoRescue (http://www.imaging-resource.com/SOFT/PHR/PHR.HTM).

*If you simply erased files on your card from your camera, PhotoRescue can retrieve them. After that, things get interesting.

*If you used the card to capture more images after erasing, you are overwriting whatever PhotoRescue might be able to recover. Something may be recoverable (from the part of the card not yet reused), but not everything.

PhotoRescue is more for damaged memory cards, but it should work - albeit for a fee.

Here's a free little app I've tried. Works awesome, took some test pics and deleted, it found them. Reformatted card in camera, it found them. Finally had to wipe the card before they were trully gone.

Clicky. (http://www.pcinspector.de/smart_media_recovery/uk/welcome.htm)
