    So I was shooting some engagement pics and I was messing around in my menu and mistakenly formated my card with a bunch of realy good shots on it.

    The card shows a capacity of 208 (jpeg), and it shows no images on the card. An empty card for me usualy shows a capacity of just over 300. SO I think those files might be chiling somewhere. Is it possible that those files are there even though I formated it? It happended so quickly, much faster then it does to erase a card, so maybe they are sitting there waiting to written over but they do not show up in camera or in finder.

    If theres anyway I would super appreciate it.

    I am pretty sure I learned some kind of lesson today.

    First, mount the card and save a disk image using Disk Utility or Toast.
    Second, run the disk image through File Juicer.
    Third, cross your fingers. :p

    Holy God Thank You!

    It works. And Well worth the 12 bucks,

    Only now I realized that my ISO settings were off durring the shoot, (I wondered why the light picked up so well in camera).

    So still an OOPS.
