I must be in the right place because I don't understand most of what is on here! Hello....I am desperate for some help. I have/had some precious pictures on a micro sd card that was in my Olympus Digital Camera. When I put it back in the camera it gives me 2 options, format Clean Card or Format. I have not formatted at all. I cannot view the pictures on there. I know they were once on there. When I put the sd card into the card reader, nothing is registering in F, G, H, I drives. As if there is nothing on there. I have tried many free recovery programs with no success, can anyone please offer any last ditched suggestions. :)

PhotoRec (http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec) is another good free option.

I've used MediaRECOVER for formatted cards before and got back 99% of the photos.

Try the new version of FileScavenger (v4) - it's much improved over the previous 3.2 version. A test I ran a couple of days ago actually gave better results than GetDataBack v4.25 which outperformed the older v3.2

The free version will let you scan for files and it will show you what it finds but it won't recover anything unless you buy a copy.

PC Inspector?? will find and retrieve lost or deleted files from your card or HDD :)
