Recover Images from SD Card after Formatting

You just formatted your digital camera's memory card by accident and now all of your images are gone! Unfortunately, losing or deleting pictures from a memory card has become a common problem, as SD cards are used by many and at times we end up pressing the wrong button on the camera or our mobile phone.

Well, if you have lost your precious photos from your SD card, fair chances are, that the photos are still present on the memory card but they are just not accessible and restoration these photos you considered gone is very much possible. Even in cases, where the memory card has been formatted, or corrupted, retrieval of the photos is possible with the help of a good photo recovery software. However, the chances of photo recovery reduce considerably with time and hence quick action to recover them is a must.

The need for quick action from your side is because, after deletion of a photo, the space occupied by that file gets marked a usable, and hence the chances of it getting overwritten by new data increases. It is essential to recover the the data before it gets overwritten and hence reacting quickly to a data loss situation could prove to be very useful.

Stop using the card till you recover data off it. Formatting just erases the index of reference to the rest of the card and not the data on it. So what you can recover will depend on how much data was overwritten after you lost the data from your SD card.
