View Full Version : deleted DCIM folder off SD card from my card reader

03-24-2009, 10:59 AM
I plugged in my SD card to my multicard reader and was going to transfer pics to my flash drive. I had another folder on my flash drive that had pictures in it and thought I was deleting that folder, but instead I deleted the DCIM folder off the SD card! I just got the drives confused. Anyway, I read of this forum where I could recover the pics. I used "FreeUndelete" download that was reccommended, but it did not find any files on the SD card. Is there something I am doing wrong, or are the pics lost forever? Help I'm desperate! :eek:

I have very good luck with a program called Photo Recovery.

Try several different image recovery programs. They use different algorithms and what fails on one may work on another.
