recovering data from SD card

Hi all,

I have a SD card that someone formatted on their camera deleting photos.

I want to know of any product that is highly recommended which I can use to recover from.

about two years ago I formatted my card and I tested many products and one worked for me. issue is I cant remember what product I used. It might have been windows or linux based. I have both systems which to test with.

this user was at a camera class learning about how to take photos. instructor said you cant restore once you delete. like I said. I was able to do this. the issue is they since have used their card and about 80 percent is still free space. I am hoping someone can help. not sure if the fact they continued writing has prevented the opportunity to recover.

You can try Recuva.
Images from space that has not been overwritten, it will probably be recovered.

Photorec (free) is another option @ http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec_Step_By_Step

For more safety, PhotoRec uses read-only access to handle the drive or memory card you are about to recover lost data from. Important: As soon as a pic or file is accidentally deleted, or you discover any missing, do NOT save any more pics or files to that memory device or hard disk drive; otherwise you may overwrite your lost data. This means that while using PhotoRec, you must not choose to write the recovered files to the same partition they were stored on.

Also PhotoRec ignores the file system and goes after the underlying data, so it will still work even if your media's file system has been severely damaged or reformatted.
