Friend of mine has accidentally deleted everything on the SD card in his camera. As he is not computer literate at all, I have volunteered to see what I can do. I've previously had excellent results with file recovery s/w on a PC when I accidentally deleted a partition (oopsy) , but that was some time ago and I forget what the app was. Not tried on a Mac. As I have access to both to Mac (OSX) and PC (Win7) , any advice on which is likely to give best results or will either be equal? Quite willing to pay (well, he is , so any recommendations for apps? TIA Answering my own question, Photorescue gets a lot of plaudits and works on both OS's so think I'll give that a go.
