Deleting photos accidentally or reformatting a memory card before moving its contents can happen to anyone. Getting them back can be a hassle if they have not been backed up to a different device. But does it have to be so frustrating?
Not necessarily. Lexi Savvides, writing for CNet, created a guide to using free file recovery software. Recuva for Windows and PhotoRec for Mac are designed specifically for recovering data on memory cards. You can read the rest of the guide by clicking here.
Savvides also notes that Lexar and SanDisk provide similar software with their memory cards. Monk Office carries Lexar memory cards and you can download their recovery software here. We also have SanDisk cards; their recovery software is available here.
