[prMac.com] Sunnyvale, California - Remo Software has published an interesting article on how to recover lost photos using the company's REMO Recover (Mac) - Media Edition software. The software serves to recover accidentally deleted, lost digital photos, audio and video files from camera memory cards, USB drives and other flash memory storage devices.
Data loss from a storage device like memory card or hard drive by accidental deletion/formatting or corruption is a common issue. But the data is not actually lost, its just not visible or readable. So when the data is present on the memory device but not just visible, you can retrieve it too.
The most important thing to do when you lose data is not to panic. In case of panic usually you will try loading/reloading, formatting or experimenting things which might remove the traces of data on the memory device. Even in cases where the memory card has been formatted or corrupted, retrieval of the photos is possible. However, the chances of photo recovery are reduced considerably with time, so quick action is a must.
The need for quick action from the user is because, after deletion of a photo, the drive space originally occupied by that file gets marked as usable, and hence, the chances of it getting overwritten by new data increases. It is essential to recover the data before it gets overwritten.
