Your camera creates folders on the SD card to hold the images. It puts about 100 images in each folder. (See page 111 in the User Guide.) When you erase images, it may only be erasing the images in one folder. But your computer still sees the images in the other folder(s). To completely erase all images, use the "Format" function (see pages 25 - 26 in the User Guide). To completely clear it, use the Low Level Format option. You can download the User Guide here.

If you haven't done anything to the memory card since then, you have a chance to recover at least some of the pictures. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer, cross your fingers, and run the program.

Is there any way to retrieve deleted images from a


I'm sure you may have heard that when you delete a file from a computer, it is never "truly deleted." That statement, however, is only partly true. The files do not get deleted after, only the space that they occupy on the disk get prepared to be written over. When you reformatted the memory card in your camera, it did exactly that, and only prepared your pictures to be written over.

SO, the first thing you have to do after format is to not save any more pictures onto that memory card or you risk writing over the pictures that you are trying to recover!

Got that far? Now you need to choose the appropriate photo recovery software. There are a TON of different programs but some are better than others. I actually recommend a program called 001 Picture Recovery because they have an option that is designed for recovering photos from FORMATTED memory cards, not only deleted or corrupted photos. You can download this software here: http://www.001-software.com/picture-recovery/

Lastly, if the program does not recognize your SD Card as a drive when you are plugging the camera directly into the computer, you may need to directly plug your card into a card reader. Make sure that the card reader has the capabilities to handle your memory card though. Many older card readers can only handle cards up to 2GB, so if your card is bigger than that, you need a newer card reader.

I hope that helps, and that you get your pictures back like I did!
