Free SD card recovery software??

Does anyone know of a good (free) program on a Mac to recover lost pics off an SD card?

Thanks, Allison

A "good" free one? No.

For certain definitions of "good" - PhotoRec.

There, fixed it for you. Paid or free, nothing is guaranteed to recover lost files completely.

Wow, you guys are a little rough, will watch my adjectives in the future

Ended up getting them back with a different program I found. Thanks, Allison

PhotoRec. worked

@itickings-- thanks! the only others I had found so far were not free-- this worked for me. I had 76 photos that I was importing into iPhoto when it crashed (right after I said it was OK to delete the originals)-- PhotoRec restored 71 of them-- but it ALSO restored THUMBNAILS of all 76 of them. I was able to compare a list of the large files with a list of the small ones to find which full size images were missing-- so I could see exactly what I didn't have. Thanks so much!
