My mother was looking through some old photos on her camera, when her camera completely froze.
She turned the camera off and on again, but her many years of photos all disappeared, leaving her quite upset.
Although we have many backed up, more recent ones are now unavailable.
I examined the files on the card, and along with the two folders DCIM and MISC, there is now a new file êêêêêêêê.êêÇ Type ÊÊÇ file - 0 bytes.
The properties of this 8gb card show that over 6gb is used, but we cannot see where the photos are.
7,7,819,264 total disk space
96 kb in 1 hidden file
96 kb in three folders
6,457,344 kb in 2,594 files
1,361,696 kb are available
32,768 bytes in each allocation unit
244,352 total allocation units on disk
42,553 allocation units available on disk
We tried checking for errors and showing all hidden files, but this has not worked.
We also tried scanning for viruses but nothing came up.
We are using Windows 7 and the card is Kodak 8gb SD HC card.
Any suggestions please?
