Answers :

Hello

My\012 apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem , \012but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got \012answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly\012 in future.

Please download Disc Digger HERE.\012 This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no \012installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.

Once\012 you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.

On\012 the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files \012or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do \012the recovery on and run the program.

The data will be displayed \012and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has \012not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location\012 on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will\012 overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.

Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.
\012
\012You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.

Feel free to ask if you need more assistance.

Kind Regards
Andrea
