Deleted Images Recovery Software Recommendations?
Armando Solares, Photographer
Englewood | FL | USA | Posted: 11:59 PM on 07.27.14
->> I accidentally erased images from a SD card. I did not format the card. I simply erased them.
I used several freeware software and they were able to recover most JPGs and Video files. However, they were unable to recover the RAW (RAF) Fuji x-20 files. Do you have any recommendations for software that may be able to do that? Paid or Free.

Thanks,

Armando

->> I've used CardRescue before but not sure if it was JPG or RAW had to recover with it, few years ago had an editor delete the entire card and had to use it - some files were corrupted but overall it recovered most of them, maybe half a dozen lost.

->> I've used Image Rescue, the one that comes with Lexar cards with a lot of success, but admittedly never to recover RAW files, so I'm unsure if it will recover those. worth a try, though.

->> Photo Rescue has been a "standard" for many years and works well.

SanDisk Rescue Pro is another option (and I believe now is a yearly license).

I have both on my laptop.

I recently had a card go bad while I was ingesting it and a video file and some JPEG/RAW files did not copy onto the hard drive. For some reason Photo Rescue did not find those missing files. But Rescue Pro did.

Not sure why, but I am glad I had both.

I'd love to hear if there are other (better?) options out there.

->> +2 for Photo Rescue. I only shoot raw and the rare time I do have a hiccup it's been able to recover the lost images. Amazing tool that's worth every penny.

->> I've had good results with PhotoRescue. Once I had accidently erased an SD card that had a bunch of videos on it. PhotoRescue recovered all the .MOV files from my Canon 60D memory card, BUT the videos were unusable. Audio with some glitches and no video. I was able to salvage the assignment by getting some screengrabs using the Treasured video recovery app (http://aeroquartet.com/movierepair/repair) so we could use images with the story online. Otherwise Treasured parent company charges for each video recovered.

I found another solution later that was able to repair the H.264 .MOV files so the videos were useable. It's German software but it's a lifesaver.
