View Full Version : SD Card Data Recovery - Help Needed

Jan 24, 2010, 09:47 PM
Hello All,

A friend of mine accidentally deleted photos on the memory card in their D40.

Does anyone know of any safe and reliable data recovery options I can relay back to them?

Thanks in advance,

Lexar's Image Rescue software is supposed to be good.

I think it's free with a Lexar card - but it works on other manufacturers cards too. $34 to download.

PhotoRescue works quite well for me. $29 and well worth the cash!

Another vote for PhotoRescue. Works great! You can download the demo to see if it'll work for you before you buy.

I've used:
Photo Rescue Expert (http://www.datarescue.com/photorescue/)
Stellar Photo Recovery (http://www.stellarinfo.com/mac-photo-recovery.htm)

Both work well and provided different results, i.e. recovered different files.

Thank you for all the helpful responses. I've forwarded them in to my friend who no doubt will find this extremely helpful.

Thanks again,
