Thank God for Disk Digger: Deleted Photos Recovered in a Cinch

I suffered from an almost irreparable blunder, I deleted all our family Christmas photos, another sting from the tail end of the dreadful year that was 2009.

Well 2010 can be at least forgiving. For a start, I found DiskDigger, a file recovery software. Its one of the best ways to recover deleted files from your computer's hard drive, memory card, usb, SD cards, etc. I guess this explains why repairshops for laptops and cellphones can seemingly unearthed those unflattering photos one has deleted so long ago.

Disk Digger is easy to use. In my case, I deleted a whole folder of JPEG files from my Canon camera (thinking my sister had backed-up all the Christmas vacay photos) I was dead wrong and now really, I've learned a very hard lesson.

Losing those pics really brought my day to a standstill. I was very upset since I decided to put off blogging past the holidays and suddenly now all the photos in the camera were gone- Pffft! I was now left with no holidays to blog about.
Lucky for me, DiskDigger recovered 100% of the photos I needed and surprisingly even more like a set of pics I took a month ago at a party were there.

I guess it helped that I haven't used that particular SD card since I deleted the folder of pics. Making the data still available and those sectors still untouched or filled out with new photo data.

I know a lot of tools,which work with other type of files.But today I saw an interesting tool-Image Recovery.It recovered my old photos in a minute and moreover made it free of charge as far as I know.Tool demonstrated one of it abilities: recover files from removable media that use the FAT file systems (FAT12/FAT16/FAT32).
