How to recover lost pictures from an SD card Even when its been formatted. Have you accidentally wiped your SD card and discovered you had not downloaded some pictures? Maybe one of your hard drives has died and you need to find some images. Well don't panic. SD cards, even reformated ones, may still contain the data you want. In this video I'll show you my way of recovering them for FREE. Software: or Both the above links work to the software I have used. If you just have photos then RePicVid is great. If you have other files (music, audio etc) then try Recuva as it lets you recover up to 1GB of data for free.

  16. Thank you, I had an external hard drive that got a video folder corrupted with the FAT and other programs weren't working to recover the mp4 video files of Seattle WA that I recorded, copied to an external SSD and then deleted off my sd card in my phone. The free version of recova didn't work on the phone's SD card to find the video files because I had permanently deleted the files. However it worked in under 2 minutes to recover all 15 video files from the external SSD I had copied them to but the FAT somehow got corrupted on the drive. Here's the instructions if anyone needs to recover non deleted files from a corrupt folder.

    Instructions found at
    To set Recuva to recover files from damaged or reformatted disks:
    Start Recuva. Enter Advanced mode if the Wizard launches.
    Click Options.
    In the Options dialog box, click the Actions tab.
    Click Scan for non-deleted files, and then click OK.
    Run the Recuva scan as normal.

    I subscribed to your channel. Thanks again for the helpful information! :) Cheers!
