PhotoRec to recover lost pictures

Post by Lesmo16 » Mon Mar 13, 2006 5:46 am

PhotoRec is file data recovery software designed to recover lost pictures or lost files from digital camera memory (CompactFlash, Memory Stick, SecureDigital, SmartMedia, Microdrive, MMC, USB Memory Drives...), even Hard Disks and CDRom.
PhotoRec is safe to use, it will never attempt to write to the drive or memory support you are about to recover from.
Recovered files are instead written in the directory from where you are running the PhotoRec program.

PhotoRec is free, it is distributed under GNU Public License.

BTW: The tool TestDisk seems to be also very useful!

I can't give further information, but if you're using XD memory, please post your experiences into this thread. :mrgreen:
