It is hard to decide which is the most commonly requested data recovery assistance need? There are so many areas in which files can be lost, damaged or corrupted. While most data recovery problems seem to revolve around finding lost emails or Microsoft Word documents, it does seem that the most urgent request for help in finding a lost file type refers to the need to recover photo image files. We usually find ourselves needing to restore photos that have been lost during transfer from our digital camera onto our computer’s internal hard drive. It does not take much interference in the data streaming download process from a camera to a computer for us to see a huge percentage of our digital image photographs fail to transfer successfully.

Unfortunately we very often clear the files from our digital camera’s memory card before we realize that our image files did not successfully transfer. Remo software makes an excellent tool specifically to recover deleted photos. If and when your digital photography has successfully transferred from your camera’s memory card onto your computer’s internal hard drive and been converted into a common image file format such as a JPEG, you can use almost any conventional data recovery tool to find and recover your lost digital photograph image files. But, should you not successfully transfer your photos and delete all of the original files on your memory card, you will still be able to recover all your lost photographs simply by scanning your digital camera memory card with the Remo software digital media recovery tool.

Most SD cards are formatted using the FAT file directory system. And as such they are extremely susceptible to viruses aimed at that formatting system and general file corruption. This results in a need to reformat the SD card so as to eliminate any corruption or virus threats. Of course reformatting any type of digital device will result in deletion of all stored files on that media. A great trick is to allow the reformatting to run its course and then use a quality data recovery tool to recover deleted photos from SD card media.

This process to undelete pictures from SD card components may seem a bit odd, as the conventional practice is to attempt file recovery before any reformatting or reinstallation of operating system files is done. But when one is hoping to isolate or remove malware and virus programs, extreme measures need to be considered. Reformatting of drives is perhaps the single most effective way to remove a virus from a component. Follow up that reformatting with a data recovery process that allows for selective rescue of important files.
