Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
While on vacation one of my memory cards developed some sort of problem so I thought I'd lost about a hundred pictures of the mountains and a hike we took on Boxing Day. I tucked the memory card away and decided to try Photo Rescue to see if it could recover the pictures. Two of the pictures were corrupted but the rest appear to have been recovered successfully. It also found some pictures from this summer (both LeConte and Wyoming) that had been deleted. I heartily endorse this product. (The demo won't actually recover pictures but it will show thumbnails of what it thinks it can recover.)

I like it when computers can fix problems instead of cause them.

Cool, that is really good to know.

I'd heard about such tools before but I was really impressed with how well it worked. Whatever corruption caused the card to be unusable by my computer or camera also did affect three of the pictures (although their thumbnails were intact so I thought I still had them) but recovering about 97% of the pictures I'd taken, plus pictures deleted half a year ago was pretty impressive. I was able to buy the software online and download the full version minutes after verifying that the demo version could see the pictures.

Ninevah used Photo Rescue (they have it at his work) when he accidentally erased a WHOLE card instead of ONE picture. I was very pissy with him. A small blessing out of that, I suppose, was rediscovering pictures from a birthday party in August that I'd forgotten about and couldn't find the files on the computer.

I agree, Photo Rescue is teh r0Xor!
