Formatting won't make the data deleted permanently, you should try some photo recovery software to rescue the lost photos from your camera ASAP, here are some programs you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music. Photo Recovery (for Windows) Mac Photo Recovery (for Mac OS X)
Note: Before your photos are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the camera memory card in case the original files(your photos) are overwritten. Regards
You have to use a card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.
Sounds like you may want to permanently format the memory card while in the camera. This will remove all data that has been written to the card. Have your camera in shooting mode, go to menu and then down to Card tab or setup option and then go to Card Setup or Format option. Highlight Yes and press Ok. This will permanently delete all data from the memory card and you will not see the older images and will only see the newest ones from now on.
Try PC Inspector "Smart Recovery" from the following listing. Select "Intensive" mode from the File/Settings menu. The program may need to run all night in this mode. If this doesn't recover the photos, am afraid then that they're permanently gone.
At this point I would probably format the memory card in the camera. This will permanently erase all images that have been written to the card. To do this: Press ok - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to Card Setup and then right arrow to Format - Choose Yes and then press Ok. All images are removed and going forward it should only download current images.
First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.
Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer. Download this photo recovery software http://www.asoftech.com/apr/ Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.
In general it is pretty hard to recover photos on a compact flash card once it has been erased and overwritten. You can just erase and take pictures over it many timesand this will pretty much take care of the problem.
You can also use an external card reader and load videos, pictures, data, etc. several times and this should make recovering your previous photos almost impossible.
