Serious HELP needed

I know I have read about SD card file recovery and I 've tried a couple of searches but cant find what I read before ....

so heres the problem ...

I took some pics today and thinking I had imported them - started deleting them from my camera using the camera delete images function
then
I realised I hadn't actually imported them, (still getting used to mac's iphoto..) stopped delete process and saved some but I'm wondering if I can salvage the rest (end of year concert for cheer leading club...I was the sole volunteer photographer)
I know I have read about some software that can recover stuff - not sure if it covers deliberately deleted files??

Signed - slightly desperate

Re: Serious HELP needed

As long as you haven't reformatted the card you should still be able to recover them. I have successfully used DiskDigger - it's free and you can find it at DiskDigger - free data recovery made easy | DmitryBrant.com

The key thing is that you have to put the card in a card reader and plug it into the computer so that the computer sees the card as a drive. One done, run the programme, point it to to the card reader and you should be able to see your files and recover them.

Re: Serious HELP needed

Hi Willow... first and the most important thing is not to use the card in any way until you have tried to recover the deleted files.
Simply remove it from the camera and use a different card.
Next try this site

" http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/d...very_software/ " (Ignore the Quote marks)

Here are listed several free phot recovery programs to download.

I personally use a program called Rescue Pro Deluxe but this unfortunately is not free.
In the UK, if you buy a San Disk Card the program comes with it on a CD as a freebie.
This may be an option for you. Good luck..
Brian

Re: Serious HELP needed

well guys - thanks for your help - I followed first link - all Windows by the look so off to the second link where I came across "Card Rescue" which would scan my card for free and tell me if the shots were there and then I could buy it to rescue them - scanned - shots found SOLD!!!n($46 AUD - and if I have another blond moment it's sorted!!)

Result 900 pics recovered - son will be happy and may even ask me to takes pics again!!!

So keep an eye on the sports thread for pics !!

thank you once again!!

Re: Serious HELP needed

Not many people know about picture recovery from deleted card files, I had a free card rescue with one of my new cards and I tried it out and recovered pictures from years ago! on some of my old cards! I am glad you got your pictures back, lesson learned.......

Sorry - didn't notice you are using a Mac. My recommendation is Windows only.

Re: Serious HELP needed

yes it has - and my son was most impressed that I got them all back !! AND I'm pretty happy with the shots - big challenge for me with challenging lighting (for me anyhow) but a reasonable number of decent shots I think.
