Default Erase memory card by mistake

I transferred the pictures from my FujiFilm 2600Z to my computer to view them. I then erased them from the card before saving them to my computer.

Is there any way to get them back.

Just make sure you don't put any more images on the card,before trying to recover the old one's!

Even if you do put more images on the card before you try and recover it, there are many programs out there for data recovery for all types of hardware media and removable media.


File Recovery has been one of my favorites. But is not free.
Also, I have heard really good reviews about PC Inspector Smart Recovery, which is made especially for the camera cards...

Here's the link: http://www.pcinspector.de/smart_medi...y/uk/demo.html

You'll find a bunch of file recovery utilities listed here:

http://www.steves-digicams.com/digsoftware_utils.html

Check the descriptions, several of them are free for just a download. All of them require the card to be accessed like a removable drive, either through the camera itself or via a card reader. If you don't have a card reader then your camera must look like a removable drive when you plug the USB cable in. Older cameras do not use the Mass Storage protocol common to new cameras and operating systems like Win XP, Me or 2000.

Default thanks for your help.

thanks for the info. I was concerned I lost everything, family photos and events, but thought there may be a way to recover them.

I can personnally attest to the use of photorescue. Used it yesterday when my card crashed. Only problem now is getting the card to work again? PC or camera won't recognize it and tried all the utilities. Even Photorescue "card wipe".

It's normal to make a backup image of any media, before using recovery programmes.
