here is something
Here is something you should have at all times if you use any kind of memory card to save pictures. Down below I enclosed a link for some software just for what happened to you and it is a life saver.It will also sometimes save you from having to send your stuff back to the manf.
God Bless And have A Great Day
JOE D, THANKS FOR THE INFO ON RESCUE IMAGE. UNFORTUNATELY MY IMAGES WERE DOWNLOADED TO MY HARD DRIVE SO i DON'T KNOW IF RESCUE IMAGE WILL WORK. I'LL TRY TO REACH THEM AND GET SOME ANSWERS.
here is something
Sounds interesting but will it rescue corrupted images on a hard drive? Dealer erased mine during an upgrade. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Something free that I have heard some recovery....
PC FILE INSPECTOR on google.com
Thanks, Bob. Will do and will post results.
GetDataback recovered images from a formatted HD
for me, and has a lot of good reviews. You can download a trial version to find out what it thinks it can recover. You must pay for it before it does any actual recovery.
You do realize though that the images may have been overwritten when the OS was reinstalled? If so, they are gone.
Probably overwritten on install.
Thanks. I have a terrible fear that this is what happened. However, I will try anyway.
This did it for me.
Hi im new so be nice I have had photos saved from my SD card when it went bad on me and I had formated it and I have used the same program to check what I could retreve from my H/Drive after I had to format it.
The program is Called PC Inspecter smart recovery and it is Freeware you get it from www.Convar.com the only problem was it renamed the files but they were all there and that is what matters.
The site is German but you just pick your country from the drop down menue give it a go.
THANKS, I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIS. I ACTUALLY USED IT AND IT RECOVERED MOST OF THE IMAGES BUT I STILL HAVE SOME THAT ARE 1/3 THERE & 2/3 BLACK OR GREY OR WEIRD, SIGH.
I WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU IN HOPES WE HAD SOME COMMON INTEREST AND WAS DISAPPOINTED TO FIND YOUR PROFILE EMPTY.
IT DID PROMPT ME TO GO FILL SOME OF MINE OUT,
AGAIN, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
AND, THANKS TO ALL THE OTHERS WHO TRIED TO HELP!
Wow this solution actually did something for me. It recovered approximately 30% of the photos from a corrupt SD card. It achieved a lot of than I thought it could. And it is indeed free.
You could do a screen capture if you are seeing a large
diplay on the monitor. Not great, but better than nothing. Paste into a photo editor and save.
I have this piece of software and it is very very good it will tell you what can be recovered and what cannot be recovered. I used it already and it has a copuple of different methods of recoving your files and pictures.you can scan it just for jpg's or bmp's you has endless combinations of recoving items. It is worth the investment I read some or the reviews on it and it had excellent reviews that is why I purchased it.
Rescuing "corrupted" photos
the first thing you should do is open up your screensaver and see where the files are being "seen" from...open that folder up in windows explorer and if you have to change the extension for the photos to .jpg and open them up in any image editor and then resave them to another folder...to see the files (they might be hidden) you might have to open the folder and then go to "tools", "folder options", "view" tab, and select "show hidden files and folders". If your screensaver still sees them, then the files are still on the computer and not written over...Hope this helps...
something I did
When I had a bad photo card I transferred the photos to my computer and sent the card back. A new one came and I transferred the photos to the new card and sent it to have the photos recovered which they did.
Why didn't you just use the photos that you transferred to
the computer? I must be missing something here.
