how to retrieve data files
Portable storage devices are very handy for keeping all of our various data files from having to
stay locked in the computer, emails or other online storage facilities. But, if these devices stop
working or become damaged or corrupted then we're up the creek without a paddle. That doesn't
mean all hope is lost though. There are many different ways to recover whatever data files you
might potentially lose in these events.
SD cards are being used more and more for dslr cameras and handsets than before. While these
small, portable digital storage devices make keeping our favorite shots, video clips, tracks, and so
on. ready when we want them if something occurs we risk losing it all. Backing up your info is not
just smart but imperative for anyone that is worried about losing this information. Saving it to a
more stable computer device or simply using one of the many digital storage websites is certainly
a good idea but unfortunately sometimes we don't get the chance or don't think about it until it's
too late. This is where recovery software programs come in. They can potentially recover
whatever data that might be on the nonworking SD card.
Zero Assumption Recovery
This program is one of the special data recovery softwares mentioned above. You simply insert
the Memory card into your card reader on your personal computer and boot up the software.
Select the drive that your Memory card is in. Once the Zero Assumption Recovery software
finishes analyzing the MiniSd card it'll display the files it was able to recover. Once you select the
files you want to recover, select a new location for the files to be saved in and the software will
transfer the data over. Make sure the new location is on your desktop or other storage devices as
you don't want to recover the data and then throw it back onto your damaged memory card. One
of the best things about ZAR is that you can use it free. For that price you cannot beat it.
CardRecovery is also a software program like the Zero Assumption recovery software that can
recover lost, corrupted, damaged, or erased data from a MicroSd card. As long as the MicroSd
card or smartphone/dslr camera housing it appears as a lettered drive in your desktop computer
then CardRecovery can easily recover your data. However, CardRecovery is the best option for
photo and video files. This is excellent for Memory Cards in cellphones or digital cameras but if
you have other types of files stored on the flash card then Card Recovery is probably not the most
appropriate. This program offers two options for download; free trial and full version. The free trial
version offers you the standard functions of Card Recovery Pro but will not cover any updates or
offer you any assistance with the software. For forty dollars you get the full version with two years
of upgrades plus support for issues with the program. Both versions will help recover your data
files but the customer support and updates may be more useful for you in the long-run than the
While the other two data recovery programs offer free versions for file retrieval for your defective
MicroSd card, Remo Recover offers more detailed options. Remo comes in 5 versions;
Basic: 40 dollars
Media: fifty dollars
Pro: 100 dollars
Tech: 300 dollars
Each version offers various recovery options for your memory card. Basic does generic file
recovery, Media can recover RAW format pictures, Pro is for erased/formatted drives that you
need to recover. Remo lets you set the files you want to scan for helping you to narrow your
search if you're looking for a certain file. It also offers all-purpose file search if you do not have a
preference for the files you want recovered. The only real disadvantage with REMO is that it
doesn't always restore everything and has some issues determining what file format the restored
files are supposed to be.
In the end you have quite a few options when it comes to restoring any data on a portable storage
device that is corrupted, damaged, or just not working anymore. While backing up your files once
a week or once every few weeks, depending on how often you use the gadget attached to the
MicroSd card, can prevent issues from an SD card becoming damaged, corrupted or stops
working. Whether it is a smart phone, camera, or other device, MicroSd cards like any form of
technology can only last so long. The last thing anyone would want is to risk losing a week to a
few years' worth of photographs and vids due to a bad MiniSd card. Using the above mentioned
data recovery softwares you can potentially salvage this files but nothing is guaranteed. Don't
take the risk of losing everything; don't forget to backup your data files either to your computer or
a digital storage space. Even though your portable storage device or the device it is connected to
goes missing or fails you'll continue to have all of those memories or any other important info.
