You will need a computer to download the CardRecovery software, then take the SD card from your camera or phone, and insert it into the card reader slot of your computer. Most modern laptops have built-in a card reader. If your computer does not equip a card reader, you may buy a USB card reader to connect the SD to your computer.

Thank you it worked perfectly. I took some pictures today and when I got home they were no where to be found and that was after taking digital pictures professional for almost 20 years. This was a first time to loose anything and I have no idea why. Your program recovered them nicely. If I never have to use it again it was worth $39. Thank you and would recommend you in a minute.

I was downloading some photos off my SD card this morning and apparently my card reader damaged the index sector of my SD card and quite quickly, it couldn’t read ANY of the 900+ photos. I didn’t want to lose the recent ones that hadn’t been backed up, yet. Downloaded CardRecovery and within minutes had all 933 photos recovered.

I’m the IT Director at our company and will be recommending it to all our employees. Thanks!!
