I was hoping that too, but I wasn't able to find one. >.<

You can also buy the Sandisk software, but you'd be better off buying a card that comes with it for the price.

I don't know how good the program is, but GiveAwayOfTheDay.com has a photo recovery software today for free http://www.giveawayoft​heday.com/easy-digital-photo-recovery/ (external link). I've recovered tons of pictures, and I usually try many different programs to recover the most possible. I've used PC Inspector with some pretty good results. When I've run out of programs that I have installed go here http://www.majorgeeks.​com/download.php?id=38​&sort=7 (external link) and you can find more programs. I'm not saying install all of them, just try a couple more because they are all programmed different and usually look at things just a little different. Hopefully one of them will help. good luck

Note that it is way easier to restore photos if you never selectively erase photos.

When selectively erasing photos, then you create holes of unused space. And since different photos have different size (depending on noise and amount of details captured), newer photos will either only partially fil the hole. Or will overflow and have some of the image stored in another hole from an erased image.

So either erase all photos (or reformat) or erase x newest photos. Then the first part of the card may contain photos. And the last part of the card will be empty. So new photos taken will be stored side-by-side, with no photo splitted up into multiple parts from reuse of holes from older photos.

When the photos are stored in a continuous sequence, a recovery program can totally ignore allocation information in the file system. Instead, the recovery program can scan the surface from start to end. Whenever it sees data that matches the magic pattern of a photo, it can then find the EXIF information and get sequence number, shoot time, resolution etc, and understand to extract a suitable large block of data.

When the card has fragmented data, then the recovery program can't identify the individual fragments, and which fragment goes where. So the recovery software can do a good job for erased photos. But have huge issues trying to extracting from a formatted card.

Card space is cheap. So it is better to not erase until you get home. You could potentially mark photos while out, if you want to use spare time then to make decisions about good/bad photos.

I know of two people that used it with excellent results.
Luckily I haven't needed to use it. Knock on wood.

Good luck.

pwm2 - that's an awesome explanation, and a very good thing to learn. I'll make sure I won't selectively erase photos next time. After your explanation, that may be why only the recent batch of new photos are damaged.

jleom - thanks. more programs to try, higher hope.

Thanks for that. Makes sense.
I gave up "field erasing"a long time ago. Just seems mistake prone, although messy file system was in the back of me head.

Before you beat your head against the wall more.... Take your son BACK to the Zoo, shoot more pictures and don't do anything stupid. He's not getting any younger and neither are you....

Best of luck

I had success some years ago when my 60 gig drive accidentally started to formatt during a fresh windows install. For some reason it started to formatt my two drives at once. Anyway I noticed it almost instantly and was able to save all of my mp3s (about 40gigs)

Only had to recover images once (for a friend). I used the sandisk software and it brought everything back to life.
Not sure if he Formatted or Erased All. But nothing on the card when I started and luckily everything came back after. (all his pics from 3 week trip to Australia and Alaska).
Sandisk include a mini CD with some of their cards. Nice to know it is there but I never delete on camera.

I had a horrendous 6 hours following a Wedding earlier this year, one of my Kingston cards went corrupt whilst I was changing lenses on my 5D2 at the wedding (didn't power the camera down...) the camera came up with 'card not formatted to the camera'...I'd had a sandisk card go bad a few years earlier on my 400d and used PhotoWizard Rescue PC to recover the images on the card sucessfully..

tried this with the Kingston Card, and it had none of it..searched the internet for numerous recovery software, tried kingstons own...nothing:cry: starting to panic now......

I then found a forum that mentioned 'Remo Recover', I downloaded the trail and it found all the corrupt images from the day, even found images from 18 months earlier (I format before each job!)....I Purchased it there and then :D:D:DSaved my bacon..give it a try.
