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:

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 recover your pictures to your PC safely!

I deleted my pictures by accident on my sony digital camera and i was wondering if i can get them back?


Take no more pics until you've recovered your 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 may help you recover your photos. This article reviews and outlines several of the better ones:

Please back up your photos before they deleted to prevent recurrence

I accidentally deleted my photos then my friend formatted it..its all gone,how can i recover all my photos?


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.
