"Hello! I have 32GB SanDisk SD card that has held totally about 12GB of JPG photos and MOV videos of last year and generally use it on my Sony digital camera. However, yesterday, when trying to read it on my Dell notebook with this Sony camera, this memory card just could not load there and I could also not access any video or photo inside. And This SanDisk SD card was in RAW and required to format while it is directly inserted to the same PC with a card reader. So, I did started RAW SD card recovery software there and formatted this camera memory card while I thought that data recovery software had taken all my lost camera information back. But, nearly all retrieved SD card photos and videos were already damaged and could not be viewed. Hence, I performed a twice formatting process and data recovery process there again. But, also get no good data recovery result. Has anyone there had good experiences to recover data after reformat? Or anyone has good suggestion to unformat SD card to recover files? Thank you very much!"
Hello, friends! Which data recovery software have you used to scan your reformatted camera SD card? Where did you get it? From your case description, it seems not to work as well as you think.

However, it will also increase the chances of damaging your reserved camera card information, especially your desired MOV videos, and making them all irrecoverable. Hence, in such cases, the immediate formatting or reformatting processes are not suggested to be done. But, now, in such situations, also don’t panic! Stop rewriting this camera SD card to cause no permanent data loss and go start SD card photo recovery software to recover your Sony camera MOV videos and JPG photos.
