Back from my leave, I was in despair when I discovered my photo SD memory card was corrupted. The only suggestion I had when plugging it to my Windows 7 desktop was: Would you like to format it?
I found this interesting free tool and would like to share it with you! It saved my holiday memories! It recovers photo files from any unreadable SD memory card (PhotoRec 6.13) and even from another storage. I have not used the TestDisk tool associated to it in the download but it may be useful for other recovery cases too!
TestDisk & PhotoRec 6.13 (15 November 2011), Data Recovery
Download it from: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Download
Here you have a Step-by-step guide to use the tool: http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec_Step_By_Step
If it helps you too, share it!… and donate on CG’s website 😉 !
