How To Recover Lost Photos

More people now use digital cameras to record their precious memories, but few consider how easily these digital images may be lost. Photos may be accidentally deleted, hard drives may crash and CDs become scratched or lost. Sometimes your pics can get lost in the process of downloading them from the camera. It's a heart-stopping moment, the thought that those irreplaceable pictures are totally lost. But more often than not, they can be recovered.

Although the computer may not be able to see your photos, it's more than likely that they are still present on the disk or memory card. Even formatting the memory card doesn't wipe your pictures out. You can't get your photos back using standard Windows tools. But specialist photo recovery software can recover lost photos in a trice!

It is important to use the right recovery software. Some undelete programs are designed only to restore files that have been deleted. They rely on the fact that after a file is deleted, its entry remains in the folder (directory) listing. They remove the "deleted" marker from the directory entry, thereby "restoring" the file.

But if too much time has elapsed since the file was deleted, that directory entry will have been reused and the software can do nothing. If the folder was deleted, the entry will have gone altogether. You won't get any files back, even though there is still a chance of recovering your photos.

DiskInternals Flash Recovery is specifically designed to recover photos, however they were lost. It can unerase memory card, and restore lost pics. It is better than general undelete data recovery software because it knows what to look for. It can detect that photo images have been stored on a disk or memory card even when there is nothing else to indicate their presence.

Although the name, Flash Recovery, suggests that it may only recover files from Flash memory cards, this product is an advanced photo recovery software that can recover lost photos from hard disks, floppy disks, CDs, DVDs, memory cards, USB memory sticks, in fact just about any kind of storage medium that can be used on a Windows PC.

Another advantage of DiskInternals Flash Recovery is that it is very easy to use. When you run the program, a Photo Recovery Wizard starts. There are three easy steps. All you need to do is follow the instructions.

First, you select the disk to scan. "Disk" means any storage device, including your memory card or digital camera.

Next, you wait while the disk is scanned for recoverable images. This can take a while, and it also uses a lot of computer power so your computer may not be very responsive while it is scanning. As Flash Recovery finds your photos, it displays a "film strip" of thumbnail images to show you what it can recover.

Finally, you select the photos you want to recover, and save them to a different drive.

Using DiskInternals Flash Recovery, it's really that simple to recover lost photos. Download Flash Recovery now!
