Looks like Photo Rescue can still read the files and hopefully recover. If you experience any lag with your usb drives lately, check the last update that was pushed, I think it is where all trouble begins.

Hard drive partitions screwed by a kid and saved by "get data back NTFS" from runtime.org. The software was simply amazing, I was able to recover most of the stuff.

Thanks POTN for the help. I am showing my appreciation with a small contribution to POTN.

I love that GetDataBack so much I have bought the fat and ntfs versions. It's helped me fix countless pc's that friends have tried to "fix" on their own In the past. I've never used it on memory cards though. Hmmmm....

I tried every program here to recover and nothing works....I took 180 pics and only 23 showed up when downloaded on a Toshiba chip no name card ( my first mistake). Whe I went to look at the restof the pics on the computer, they said they were corrupted. They still show various sizes as if there is something there.Downloaded a hex editor and shows that the data is all zeroes, no hex info whatsoever on the remaining 157 pics and video using Canon T1I. The camera batts in the grip where about 40-50% full and the 32 GIG had about 10 GIGS used. Maybe I should have formatted before the new set. The others were already downloaded previously, just not deleted. I junked the card and got a Sandisk Extreme 64 now with Rescuepro installed.
Heard that low batteries and an unfreshly fomatted card were my probs. Stiil got 6 gigs of air that has some size tho....just no data.

what if I have already used the card? all files are gone?

Possibly. It depends on how full it was to begin with and what you did to prepare it for re-use. If you filled it up again, or have an SD-card and low-level reformatted it, then you probably won't be able to get anything back. If you just deleted all the files and have only taken a couple of pictures since then, your chances of salvaging the older pictures are pretty good.

Don't you backup your files just in case?, I started it recently after my camera just decided not to work anymore and card did not give any connection.

I'm really amazed at how powerful some of this s/w is.

I have a Sandisk Extreme Pro 32GB CF that I've used extensively for a little over a year. I lost several hundred files off one of my hard disks due to MBR problems but then thought perhaps I could pull those same recent files from the card. I'd shot these particular pictures about 40 days ago, had probably formatted the card at least 3-4 times since then, deleted a bunch, and used that same card on multiple occasions.

I downloaded Rescue Pro Deluxe from Sandisk and after about 30 minutes of deep scanning it had recovered most the files. Even multiple formats didn't prevent it from pulling back many of the recent files.

Good free software that works well.

another ringing endorsement for PhotoRec, although i wasn't using it on a CF card but on a hard drive.

i had a terrible 'oh sh1t' moment when i first installed my Drobo last week...i put 3 brand new 4TB drives in it, but the formatting of the drives didn't quite go as planned and the drive letter was never associated to it. i finally got that sorted but then didn't realize (height of stupidity here) that you had to transfer files to the Drobo, rather than just sticking in a drive into one of the bays and copying them internally.

no, that will format the drive.


and i did that w/ a full 2TB drive. whose external drive backups had failed (click of death) a few months ago.


yeah, height of stupidity. i had a good view from up there.


but photorec (after ~30+ hr) scanned and retrieved 151,000 files for me. free. beats the $700-$2700 quote i received from a data retrieval service.

highest recommendation.

I recently had to recover video files from my Lexar Professional 600x card. Earlier in the day I took a few short videos and mistakenly formatted the card a few hours later. I had some luck with PhotoRec in the past, but this time the videos that it had recovered weren't playable. After trying other apps, I stumbled upon the free version of EaseUS. Luckily, the files that it recovered were intact. Give it a try the next time you need an app to recover your files.

When we came back from vacation last summer, I left my CF card overnight in the card-reader slot of my computer, and it got corrupted by a virus. All the files (several hundred of them) disappeared. I decontaminated the card with my anti-virus program, and it detected the files even though they weren't visible. The card also showed as full on the desktop. To recover the images, I first tried Kingston MediaRecover, which found and recovered the files but put them in an unreadable format. I then downloaded the demonstrator version Sandisk RescuePro Standard version, and it was able to recover all my images in readable format. I was only able to save 25 images with the demonstrator version but could see it had recovered all of them, so I purchased the full version for $39 was able to save the whole set.

RescuePro is very simple to use and extremely effective. If your images are worth $39 to you, I highly recommend it!
