A research shows that, about 40% of users the photo file saved by them, if photo loss from memory card, hard drive and so on, they will feel nervous and need some solutions to recover lost photos. So we can learn that photo recovery is so common in our daily life. However, it is necessary for us to pay attention to something important when we do photo recovery. In this article, I list several notifications for memory card photo recovery.
Before Memory Card Photo Recovery
1. Don’t save new data to the storage media which lost photo
When you know photo loss from memory card or the device which the memory card work on, you had better to stop using the card or the device, no new data saving or writing, because the lost photo will be overwritten.
You may wonder that, the lost has gone from the memory card, why they will be overwritten? Well, in fact, the real file of the lost photo is still in the memory space of card. When we delete or format data in memory card, they won’t be wiped from the space at once, the system just mark a “blank” flag to the space where deleted or formatted data save in, until new data save to the card, they will occupy the “blank” space, and the original file will be overwritten. Once the real file is overwritten, there is no chance for you to recover photos from memory card.
2. No formatting
When the memory card can’t be read by device or computer, most users hold the point that, formatting can solve this problem, and in some time, formatting is just like a panacea for them to deal with storage problem. That’s wrong! If memory card error happen and cause data loss, formatting just can damage the data in the memory card, if you do formatting before photo recovery, some photo will be unable to recover.
