Recovering images from a memory card
« on: November 25, 2012, 03:16:57 PM »
I recently had a CF card error message, and lost the images from my memory card.

After searching the interwebnet and coming across countless companies willing to recover my files for a big wad of cash - I found how to do it myself.

First make sure your card reader actually works (turns out mine didn't which added to my problems).
Download a good File Recovery Program - I used RescuePro Deluxe, others are available for free (Drop me a PM/email/text for help with RescuePro  ;) )
Next insert the memory card into the card reader and FORMAT
Run the Recovery program and follow the instructions.....

And Bob's yer Mothers Brother - images should be recovered.  Well, it worked for me.

Hopefully, this will help someone out..... if every man/woman and their respective animal of choice know how to do this - I apologise for taking up web space.
