How to Recover Deleted Photos from your Memory Card
Can I Recover Photos Deleted from a Memory Card?
I accidentally deleted some pictures from the memory card (which is a SD card) of my Sony digital camera. I thought they had already been transferred to my computer, but they hadn’t been. Is there a program that can retrieve those pictures? Many thanks.
Normally, pictures in your memory card are not fully removed. They are just marked as inaccessible before new data overwrites them. If you want to retrieve them, you need to stop using the memory card and be sure that your card can be recognized by your computer. Then you can look for photo recovery software to help you.
