Hi All.

Just had a card go very very weird on me, losing me 325 images .... luckily not ones someone has paid me to take!!!!

Can anyone recommend any good (and relatively cheap (or even free if such a thing exists!!)) recovery software to use with a Mac?

I am already aware of the ones that offer demos and then you have to pay ..... just wondering what's out there that people are happy with.

Many thanks.

Anth.

Some card manufacturers have their own software available e.g. Sandisk.
Has yours?

Find someone with a PC and try Recuva - its free and quite good but there is no mac version yet.

If it’s a Sandisk, one get in touch with them. I used their (free) RescuePro software and twice now I’ve managed to recover files from a formatted SD card. They got in touch afterwards to check it had all worked okay and were very helpful.

I had kept the small insert that came with the card for years in case I ever needed it.

P.s. I’m on a Mac. Where are you? I’m on the Isle of Wight and can help if you’re local.
