Hello all,

I have a 1.0 GB Kingston SD card. I foolishly lent the card (with pictures on - about 300-400) to a friend who, without realizing what she had done, managed to corrupt, format (in the camera) and take new photo's on the card....

the reason i lent the SD card was because i copied the picture on to my usb stick using a MAC laptop. however there is a problem with those particular photos, there is only a file but no image (i asked in a shop and was told that picture file has two parts:detail and picture, and that the picture part did not copy)

is there any way at all of recovering these pictures from either drive, or are they lost for ever?

to make this problem even more fun i am currently traveling around india and only have good internet (the next two days at the moment) every now and then.

much appreciated for all and any help,

travelfool

cheers for the response Broni...i tried that software but unfortunately it only found the new pictures on the card...is there a more powerful program or different way of doing it?

i thought it was impossible to completely delete files off drives...thats why the police keep catching baddies?

cheers

True, but they don't use freebies, but high dollar programs.
Unfortunately, short of paying some recovery service top dollars, I don't have any other suggestions :thumbsup:

yeah once they are deleted and then new files are written over them then they are hard to get back but as said not impossible.
