I too purchased File Scavanager and think I've gotten my money back several times over. It has recovered content from crashed drives, reformatted memory cards, etc.

One quirk I've noticed though is that Canon Raw (.CR2) files recovered from a formatted card show up with a .TIF extension. The file size is about right (21MB), and LightRoom seeems to be able to recover them, but it does seem a bit weird that the extension is off. Maybe it's guessing an extension in these cases?

Way back when, Canon's "Raw" format was TIFF. Perhaps it retains much of the header structure from those days.

I will be trying out as many of these as need be when I get back home. Shot the first half of a wedding on my card and only 195 photos are on the card. It looks like the last file that was saved is corrupt, I can only see half of the photo no matter where I view it. From speaking with some people it sounds like that one corrupt file may be preventing me from seeing the rest.

Here is my thread explaining what happened and how:

If anyone else can offer any help at all I will love you forever!

Read through all the posts and tried several programs......perhaps there is a newer program out that might help.

I reformatted my Sandisk and used the card for more images.......RAW format...and so far the programs for recovery are only finding the new images......anyone know of a program that might recover images from previous format?

Thanks for any help!!

The action of reusing the card should probably not have been done because the possibility of an over write situation is high making some images unrecoverable.

Avira Unerase Personal is also a good & lightweight data recovery software, moreover it's free AFAIK.

Hopefully I am posting in the right spot..
Have Canon 6D, used a Lexar Pro 1000x 16gb card while in Florida this past week. Shot pics, reviewed them on camera...looked great. Drive home to VB, turn on camera..Bamm..Cannot read card.
Have downloaded most of the links here, have tried the tape on the write lock slot on side of card....nada.
Windows says the directory name is invalid.
I have gotten it to come up and say the card needs to be formatted.
Tried that with windows and SDformatter. No luck. Says it cannot format.
Have gone through CMD to release or clear the write protect and in DOS it says its clear....But try it in windows and it says still write protected.
Run everything as Administrator...No luck.
Tried ZAR-X, Rescue Pro, DDR Memory Card Recovery etc.
Just cant get past the write protect issue to try anything else.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
:oops:

I needed to recover files from a CF card for a Canon 7D Mk II that I had prematurely formatted.

Image Rescue 5 and Recuva all managed the jpg's, but not the CR2
PhotoRec successfully recovered everything.
