Hi iCare recovery guys, I had problem with my sd card that I formatted it. Okay.. The details is I save all my pictures on my SD card which was working perfectly fine until I added some more photos to it. now it is like there is no photos on it. When i try to open it.. It keeps saying SD card not formatted, but i dont want to format and lose all the data. If i go under properties it says there is no free space, but yet it won't open. HELP! Then the next day, I cannot help my self to figure out what happened, then I connect the sd card again to my pc and oops I confirmed yes to format the sd card when it reads the same notice. How to repair the damaged sd card and recover the formatted data? HELP!

Formatting would mark all space of SD card as empty and available for new data writing, but it keeps original data being untouched before new data is added to the formatted card. In other words, there is a hope of SD card recovery after formatting and before new data writing.
