Have you ever accidentally deleted pictures from your cameras memory card? Or pressed the Format
button instead of delete button and wiped your card clean?
However, there are also a lot of good open source / freeware apps
out there that can usually get the job done. And that’s where the nice people at CONVAR come in – offering a program called PC Inspector Smart Recovery
which can recover lost pictures for free. What’s even better is that
it’s extremely easy to use and works well (based on my tests).
Please note that after you’ve lost the picture, DO NOT take any more pictures
on the memory card, as writing new data to the card lowers your chances
of recovering the picture. Also note, that recovering the picture is
not 100% guaranteed, but there’s a good chance your picture will be
Step by step instruction, here it is:
: Download PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
: Connect your memory card, either by a little memory card reader, or hook your camera up to the PC via the data cable.
: Run PC INSPECTOR Smart Recovery.
: Select the drive which is the memory card. It should be the one that has just connected.

Hope helped with this. Good luck.
