Question about Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z6 Digital Camera
Please tell me I haven't just lost nearly 1,000 important family pictures. This morning, when I turned on my camera to view the pictures I took yesterday, I tried to delete a fuzzy picture, in the same way I have deleted many pictures in the past. Instead, a screen came up that I have never seen before. I'm not even sure how to get to it again, but it had a list of about 4 options, with delete at the top, and I believe format next. I didn't know what the screen was about, or how to get out of it. Because delete was an option at the top, I tried to scroll up to that option and select yes, but instead, it said format, yes or no. Because I ddin't know what it meant, but thought it must refer just to that picture, I selected yes. To my horror, my camera now says NO IMAGES. Is there anyway to undo this. If not, I have lost my grandbaby's birth, and the first 8 months of his life, plus any other family pictures etc. My heart is pounding!!!!
First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off)and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.
If you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:
If you need something a little more "user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:
You can try the demo to see what you can recover before buying.
Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card until you can recovered your pictures to your PC safely!
Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!
