sd card recovery program
Losing data regardless of what it is, is an awful experience. With portable storage devices such as
memory cards and SD cards growing larger each year we count on these more and more to store
our records. Whether it's a dslr camera with a few years' worth of pictures and videos to a cell
phone with nearly our entire lives saved on them, storing info in these delicate hands poses a
bigger risk for catastrophe. Thankfully there are plenty of solutions available that can help us
retrieve this data when things go south.
File retrieval expert services
There are a variety of companies and IT specialists that can help you hopefully retrieve any info
that might have accidently been deleted or corrupted on a MiniSd card. These experts or
companies provide a range of services depending on what you want to recover. However, these
services tend to cost quite a bit compared to standard programs. For instance, Geek Squad offers
a $50 diagnosis,but the actual recovery could cost between $200 up to $1,450+ based on the
level of damage of the memory card. While other services would have their own pricing structure
you can expect much of the same regarding file retrieval. Whether this is worth the price or not all
depends on the type of data files that you lost and what it means to you. If it's a few photos from a
recent vacation it might not be quite as significant as say photographs, videos and audio files
captured in a conflict area overseas for a journalism task.
File recovery software
Similar to the previously listed services, these softwares offer a few different functions when it
comes to retrieving data files from a memory card. Regardless of whether it was corrupted,
damaged or deleted these computer programs can potentially retrieve whatever you could stand
to lose. Some of these programs range in price from totally free to several $100s. While the larger
price tag does not always involve a better service generally it all depends on what you need to
recuperate and how damaged/corrupted the MiniSd card is. For example, Recover my Photo for
$40 will only recover image files with the more inclusive Recover My Files for seventy dollars.
Another example is with Recuva which is available in a free version and a paid version of $35.
Both versions of Recuva are fully functional recovery programs; however, the 35 dollars version
includes tech support . PhotoRec is another file recovery computer software similar to those listed
earlier. However, what sets PhotoRec apart from Recuva and Recover My Files/Photos is the
overall performance you get from it. The creators of PhotoRec say that it can recover over 300 file
types not only images or popular file formats. Unlike the other 2 software programs PhotoRec
doesn't have a very intuitive layout and as it runs on a command prompt, it can turn people who
are not familiar away. In comparison to the other two softwares, PhotoRec is the superior
software with it being both efficient and free. However, unlike Recuva and Recover My
Files/Photos it isn't nearly as easy to use. While all of the programs will potentially retrieve your
files which one you choose is your call. Both PhotoRec and Recuva are free, Recuva has the
easier to navigate design unlike PhotoRec but PhotoRec is far more capable. Recover My
Photos/Files might serve you well if you just need to retrieve a particular file type and don't mind
spending money for it. In either case all of these computer programs can potentially recover
whatever data you need back.
How to avoid data loss
The best way to avoid losing your memory card data and being forced to recover it's by backing it
up. Make sure to back it up to some other storage device, a computer, or by saving the data files
in your e-mail or other digital storage facility. This will eliminate the potential risk of losing or
damaging your flash card and losing all the info on it. Getting into the habit of backing up your
data is actually a great idea because like life, technology can be unpredictable. One second
everything is working perfectly the next the digital camera starts making a crunching noise, smoke
starts pouring out of it and before you realize it your SD card was literally eaten by your digital
camera and hungers for more. There are just some things that no matter what you do you just
cannot recover it. It's for this reason that keeping a backup isn't just a helpful advice but a needed
Retrieving a damaged or corrupted flash card is possible. With different data recovery services on
the market you can put your data in the hands of an IT specialist and they can hopefully retrieve
anything that you could stand to lose. If you don't have or don't want to pay the sticker price on
such services you have several options in programs that can help. Softwares such as:
Recover My Files/Photos
Every single program has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes down to
retrieving files from your MiniSd Card. Whether you choose a professional service or a data
recovery program there's a very good chance that anything on your MicroSd Card can be saved.
