I just lost some images due to a camera or card mal-function.
I can only find commercial and windows stuff online atm, so before I
spend further time trying to find solutions I wish to probe the
collective experience of list users.
Has anybody here experience recovering files lost from SD cards or
similiar due to hardware/software malfunction ?
Can you suggest methods for recovery, or attempted recovery ?
I have write-protectected the card, so assuming it's not the problem,
the FileSystem should be intact and (i hope) most of the data still on
I would like to make a soft image of the disk, and make attempts to
repair it, or manually analyse it to retrieve image data if possible.
Can I do this using the camera or will i need a card reader ?
Any other suggestions re procedures and or (linux) software that could
be helpful here ?
