How to recover deleted files from memory card

People use memory card a lot nowadays. It is quite often to see people accidentally deleted video or photo files from memory card, or pressed format button wrongly and lost all data on the card. Files may lost due to reasons like card corruption, so data could be lost even user did nothing wrong.

In this article, I will discuss whether it's possible to recover files from SD card, and how to recover files like videos and pictures from memory card.

1. Stop using the Memory Card.

When the files are deleted, or memory card is formatted, the files data are still stored on the memory card, just that they are not inaccessible, because system has lost the entry point, and the space is marked free to use.

So if you continue to use the memory card, it's likely that new files will be saved to the space of deleted fiels. This will make the lost files unrecoverable.

2. Download a professional file recovery software.

The easiest way to recover files is to use a file recovery software. The software should be easy to use and support memory card type. Memory Card type means CompactFlash Card, Memory Stick Duo, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Pro Duo, miniSD, MultiMediaCard MMC, SD Card, xD Picture Card, compact flash, memory stick, etc.
