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

    Thanks, Allison

    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! :)
