Hi everyone,

I accidently deletedsome jpegfiles from my 20D using the Erase All option on the camera.

Does anyone know how I can get them back? I haven't taken any photos since deleting them.

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks. Tim

SanDisk recently included a piece of software called RescuePro when I purchased an Extreme card for recovering lost data due to accidental erasure. To use it you have to have a card reader.

http://www.sandisk.com/retail/rescuepro.asp

I haven't used the software, so can't say how well it works ... and there may be similar applications available if you seach the internet.



Good luck!



Bob

Thanks Bob.

I have tried a couple of different programs but it looks like with all of them you need a card reader. Is that the case? i.e. no undelete straight through from camera?

I will try the Sandisk product if all else fails and by myself a reader so thanks for that!

Timmy-

Now is an excellent time to develop a workflow procedure and stick to it !!

Accidents happen to us all. The difference is what we do to prevent reoccurances.

A Card reader is almost a MUST for many.

Downloading the card to your harddrive and then doing your review is a safe way.

Once you have seen your images on your computer, reload your card and reformat in camera (never from your computer).

All of the programs require a card reader. no in camera work can be done. the best of the best is photorescue. if its on the card it will recover it. not just images either. all formats too. been using it for 3 years now.

Why can't the card be formated through Windows? Will it cause corruption?
