How to Recover Deleted Pictures from a Memory Card


Everybody has a digital camera these days. More and more people use digital cameras to record wonderful moments. But it seems digital pictures are easier to lose than traditional film pictures because the digital camera has a useful but dangerous delete button or feature. An operation mishap may delete one or all of the pictures instantly. Do you think the valuable pictures were permanently lost? NO! In most cases, there are some easy ways to restore them.


Memory Card Picture Recovery A digital camera stores the pictures you take as separate files on a flash memory card (also known as "digital film"). There are many different types of memory cards such as SD, CF, xD Picture Card, SmartMedia, Memory Stick, the MMC Card and more. In addition, each card type has different brands like SanDisk, Kingston and more. They have different sizes, capacities and appearances, but they are just the same when acting as storage to hold pictures - they are similar to your old floppy disk or hard drive. When you delete one or more pictures from your camera, your camera locates the picture files on the memory card, then "deletes" them and marks the leftover space as usable. In most cases, for fast processing, the camera doesn't delete the picture file body but leaves them as is, which makes it possible for us to retrieve them after deletion.

Okay, let's begin. To recover the deleted pictures, you need to connect your camera to your computer (usually via USB). If your camera does not appear as a drive letter in "My Computer", an external USB card reader is necessary. You may find such card readers from local computer shops, Amazon, BestBuy, or Wal-Mart. They're very cheap and very useful, not only for data recovery, but also for photo retrieval and processes in daily life. When you insert the card in the card reader, and connect the card reader to your computer, it will appear as a drive letter in "My Computer", which will allow a software tool to access the data on the memory card.

If you have your camera or card reader connected, you may download the picture recovery software CardRecovery by clicking this download link.

It's a small download and you may get it in less than one minute. Run the downloaded executable file and follow the instructions to install it on your computer. Then launch it. It has a wizard-style interface and it's very easy to use.

Tips:

1. Don't put additional pictures on your memory card if you find you have deleted some pictures by mistake. Otherwise it may cause overwriting and make them unrecoverable.

2. Use an USB 2.0 connection if available to connect your camera or card reader to your computer, it may make the scan much faster than an USB 1.0 connection.
