What is the easiest way to recover formatted digital camera memory card which has all my photos, videos, and music? I don’t know whether I can get them back. Any information and solutions will be appreciated, especially the solutions that you have personally used and have had success with. Thank you very much in advance.
When such situation has been faced, the first thing you should do is remove the card from the device and slide the write protect switch to protect any further data from accidentally being overwritten to it, making it read only. If the card is in the process of formatting, and you realize it, don’t pull the card out as this may cause total data corruption on the card and make recovery less likely. Allow it to finish the format because once it’s begun, it usually only tells the card’s file system that space occupied by the previous data is now free to be overwritten, rather than actually destroying the files.
Whenever user face any sort of problem in his computer or other storage device, they prefer only formatting. But instead of solving the problem, improper formatting results in other serious problems like data loss. Many users won’t maintain appropriate backup of important data regularly.
