Good free software that works well.

This DOS Based SW just recovered files from a friends mom's G9.
The SD card had pix on it, formatted, more pix, formatted again and then sent to me.
It recovered ALL of the pictures.

Pretty impressive

raid != backup. There are various reasons why raid arrays can and do fail, and yes, disk recovery is expensive! It should be noted that photorec isnt as point and click/GUI oriented as other software, nor quite as user friendly, but it and testdisk work pretty well if you know what you are doing with them.

Not a long time ago f#@&^*! windows decided not to recognize my 500GB external drive claiming data corruption. Testdisk recovered over 200GB out of circa 255.

I used PhotoRec after accidentally formatting my card today, and it worked great!

I came home from a 3.5 week desert photography road trip odyssey. I almost literally cried when I plugged my memory card in and about the last 700 pictures of the 1000 from the trip were corrupt. PhotoRec recovered approximately 600 of them. I almost cried when I got them back.

I learned an important lesson today. I recently formatted a card without downloading some of the images. I tried numerous recovery programs such as PhotoRec, Image Rescue 3, and PhotoRescue Advanced. They recovered the files but I couldn't open them in Photoshop CS4. It turned out that my new SX1IS Camera required an update to Adobe Camera Raw for them to be supported in CS4. Don't forget to make sure your software is up to the task of viewing the images before recovering lost files. I spent two days and $100 on recovery software to find that the free PhotoRec had already solved the problem.

Great thread.
I was able to view the photos from Kingston Elite Pro 8GB Compact Flash. When I was importing the photos (Raw+JPG) from canon 40d the import stopped after 8 photos and not able view others.

I used photrec and it was able to recover 800 photos
I used rescuepro demo version it recoverd 1030 photos still there are around 200 missing which are from my kids event and important.
I used PC inspector file recovery it recovered the 8 photos I was able to view in 40d and took lot of time.

I am new to this forum and will try more and see how I can recover the rest.

I have tried a few after multiple formats and had no luck. It's always worth a try though.

Good free software that works well.

PhotoRec is simply amazing! And it's open source! And available for linux!

I've just recovered a major part of a photoshoot that took 2 hours for makeup and 3 hours to shoot. :cool:

There's a DOS/Bios like interface to it, but it works beautifully.

The "Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery" made a bait and switch on me! It installed the demo, showed me the files and then wouldn't recover them until I purchase the program. And it made me touch windows. ;)

Thank you for the link!

EDIT: I just realized I was a bit biased, I got my files back and am very happy. The program is simple, free and worked for me... unlike the other one. To use photo rec you need some very basic command line skills.
