Liz Cornwell here. You know, I think that a lot of our subscribers had great holidays. Some had a good time with family and friends, and some went on vacation. And it sounds like everyone made some great photos. Anyway, that’s what people said in their emails to us. Unfortunately, those weren’t happy emails. Most of them asked me one thing: “How to recover deleted pictures from memory card? I’ve quick-formatted my camera’s memory card by accident! Is there any way I can get my holiday photos back? They are so precious!”. Luckily, it is possible to recover your lost photos. I’m going to give you some tips how you can maximize your chances of successful photo recovery.
The first thing you should do is stop panicking. Seriously, you will do more harm than good by doing something erratic. Just calm down and take that memory card out of your camera. Don’t use it if you want to take any more photos, as you don’t want any of your deleted files overwritten by new files. If that happens, they will be gone for good.
The next thing you should do is insert your memory card in your computer’s card reader and scan it with software like Auslogics File Recovery Pro. Basically, you need the software that can recover files even from quick-formatted drives. Use the deep scan option to boost your chances. It may take a lot longer to scan your memory card, but the results will be worth the wait. I’m not promising 100% recovery, but most of your photos will be restored. That's how to recover deleted pictures from memory card.
