Question about Sony Cameras
I had used my Sony camera to take tons of photos in the past year. And all these pictures were also straight stored on the inner SD card. However, yesterday, several picture folders on this SD card were deleted accidentally when viewing. What am supposed to do for rescuing these deleted Sony photos back?
I would try a photo recovery program like Recuva. Don't take any new pictures on the memory card until you get them recovered. I would suggest taking it to someone who knows their way around computers, like a high school kid, and have him show you how to do it. Most of them will do it for free, and might have a part time job at Best Buy or some other electronic retail store. Then have him show you how to back up your pictures on your computer. Once all your pictures are loaded on your computer you don't have to worry so much about deleting them and you can also copy them from your computer back to your SD card. You can also have him show you how to set up a "cloud account" and backup or store your pictures in the cloud where you can access them from any computer that connected to the internet. It's good to have your pictures stored in more than one place. I found that out the hard way when one of my hard drives failed and I hadn't backed up that hard drive yet.
By the way, if you leave all those pictures on the SD card, one day you're going to have that shot of a lifetime and your camera will say, CARD FULL!

In case the lost photos get overwritten, you should not take photos any more. Insert the memory card to your computer and try a photo recovery tool. Also give this one a go if you're on a Mac.

By doing a search on the internet you can find file recovery programs with 30 day trial times and attempt to capture the files yourself. Did you delete the files or format the card? Which ever don't do anything more with the card. The reason I'm telling you this is because you don't want to write anything over the memory card (put files on top of what you want to recover). Now saying this about downloading a recovery program if you attempt to recover and it fails that means it's more difficult if not near impossible to have someone who has experience recover the files.
No the picture files will not go back on the SD card they will be written to a CD.
To make this short I would suggest taking the SD memory card to someone that has the proper recovery program and pay them to retrieve the files.
