That's why you cannot format a camera when\012you have a data backup. So, in the future, I hope you can learn a lesson to\012back up everything important well before you do any change to it.
\012\012But, right now, what you should is to\012restore all your lost pictures back as soon as possible:
\012\0121). Immediately pick out the inner memory card of your digital camera\012in case that any newly taken picture would rewrite your original photos.
\012\0122). Insert this memory card to your computer via a card Reader and\012prepare to retrieve all your deleted pictures.
\012\0123). Apply a formatted memory\012card photo recovery freeware to retrieve all your deleted photos back\012successfully:
\012\012http://www.formatrecovery.blogspot.com/2013/02/recover-data-after-formatting.html
\012\012I believe this data recovery freeware can\012work perfectly on your camera memory card just in the same way as it completely\012retrieves all the deleted data of my friend off from his phone memory card.\012Just give it a shot!
\012\0124). Save and back up all the restored photos on a different memory card\012or drive in case of data recovery failure.
\012\012Note:\012Never forget to back up everything important at\012least on two memory cards or locations in the future.
\012\012Good luck!
When you format you camra you can not retrive the picture you lost, you best way is to but a SD card from your local wal-mart and save you pictures on that in stead of you camras hard drive.
