The Theory for Data Recovery
How to Recover Data from SanDisk 32 GB CF Card?
SanDisk 32 GB CF card is consistently welcomed by mass digital photographers. SanDisk designed this card to store highest quality images and videos quickly and easily. The extreme performance and speed facilitate you to capture every special moment in beautiful color and detail.
However, when the special color or detail lose, you must feel great fretful and anxious. Data loss may result from the following reasons:
Although there are many existing risk to lose our precious data, there are many solutions to make up the lose. When you delete your data, file system just renames your data as "Deletion" and do not remove them away. To explain it simply, I'd like to draw a analogy. Every file saved on the memory card has a distinctive name, just like we human have our own name. File system just changes the name of files while the content and location of files are still the same. It is easy to understand that we are still who we are even we change our names. So the lost files are also intact despite of the deletion or format. They are just named as "Deletion" to be invisible and we can use a way to recover their name to make them visible again. But there is a premise: the old data haven't been overwritten by new ones. Therefore, once you encounter this kind of data loss, make sure that no more files are saved to the drive or memory card.
Firstly, go to download a free version and install it on you computer or laptop. Insert your CF card into the card slot of digital camera, and connect the device to computer via a card reader. But the strongly recommended way is directly connecting your card to computer via a card reader.
