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.

You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should appear as a “Removable Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec

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:

http://www.lc-tech.com/software/prwindetail.html.

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 recover your pictures to your PC safely!

I accidentely deleted some pics , is there anyway to get them back /


First take the memory card out of the camera. Pictures that have been deleted are probably still there, but will be overwritten if you take any more pictures on top of them.

Your camera is not able to undelete pictures, but there are programs for doing this on a computer. You can put the memory card into a card reader attached to a computer, and use an undelete program to recover the deleted files. Undelete programs are available for free download from the internet, try the one at THIS LINK

If the pictures are very important to you, you might want to seek help from an experienced person.

Hi , I have an HTC HD touch . by a big mistake I delete all my contacts from the sim and the phone , Please tell me if there is anyway to get back my contact , I never have a back up on it . Thanks a lot...


Greetings-
If you did delete your contacts from both the sim card and the phone without a backup your only hope in getting them back is if your sevice provider provides a address book backup. If not then there lost for good.
I know how you feel I did the samething. My solution for the next time was to import them to microsoft office. That way I had them on my computer and could always reload an up date them.

I hope this helps.

My son erased all his photos from the camera by mistake, is there anyway to get them back?


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software options that are available to help you recover your photos. This blog article reviews and outlines several of the better ones.

If she only deleted them instead of formatting them, there are expensive software programs that can retrieve the pictures providing you didn't keep adding more pictures to the card.

Deleted photos by mistake Is there anyway of


You can often successfully recover deleted photos from a PC, phone or camera memory card or USB Memory stick, it just depends on what's happened since the files were deleted.
When you delete files the data itself isn't deleted, just the index entry that says where the data for those files is located. The space containing the deleted files is also now marked as free space so it is available to the system for any new files to be written there instead.

If and when that happens, then it becomes too late to recover your deleted files so it is very, very important to not save any new files or data to the device concerned.
If the deleted files are on a memory card or USB memory stick, just don't save any new files to it.

One of the easiest ways to see if you can recover deleted files is to try some file recovery software. Recommended this data recovery as it saved my life many times.

I deleted pictures by mistake. could they still be in internal memory?


Sorry to say it, but the answer would be no. Once the pic is deleted it is gone forever. If it were a computer you would have a chance with the proper experience and software (CSI stuff). On a computer even when something is deleted it is stored on the computer and forensically it can be recovered, but not by the typical novice user. I hope this helps and good luck!

SMS messages and call logs being deleted


i had this problem with my phone, the blackberry is deleting all your messages and call logs because you dont have any phone memory, so your phone deletes everything it thinks isnt important.. so delete some of your pics, music or ringtones, and invest in a memory card! hope that helps!
