What does format mean on my vivicam 5019? I accidentally erased all my pics when i clicked on it


Format completely erase the card and optimizes it for the camera's operating system. Once formatted, the pictures are gone.

My new card w/ pics on it, when inserted into


Do not format the card....it will be erased. You need to get a card reader and use it to download your pics. When the pics are safely downloaded, then you can format the card but it in the camera, not the computer. 36e5191.jpg

Can I recover accidentally erased photos


Yes. Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, and take the card out of the camera. This will lessen the chance of you overwriting some of those pictures. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

Deleting or formatting won't make the data in memory card erased permanently.

Those lost pics are still stored on the memory card, it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.

So as long as those photos are not overwritten by new pictures, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.

Try Asoftech Photo Recovery program, which can recover pictures after deeply scanning the memory card to look for lost pics you accidentally deleted or formatted.

Pressed format button


Hi,

In this case, i will suggest you to go to the service centre of Camera, then request him for data recovery.
As there is no recycle bin in camera... so it's very hard to recover pic ownself....

for any query, contact me...

Thanks

Memory card erased


Take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

The reason this occurred is that you likely never formatted the card. The card will work fine in the beginning but eventually will corrupt. AFTER you've recovered the photos, format the card IN YOUR CAMERA to prevent this from happening again (dig out that instruction manual to figure out how). Keep in mind formatting will also totally erase your card, so again only do this after you've recovered the photos.

Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, consider formatting your card IN YOUR CAMERA (did you do this when you first got the card? if not, this is what eventually happens). Keep in mind formatting the card will also totally and permanently erase the card. Press menu, then select the tools menu, then scroll down to the selection stating your cards memory capacity and select it. Then follow the on-screen prompts for a "low-level" format. This should help prevent this from happening again in the future.
