Just as the title says, this program saved me big time! Shortly after filming a band for a 45 minutes set and getting some great shots, for reasons I don’t care to go into my memory card got wiped. Naturally I was freaking out at all the great footage I had lost while also letting the band down. I was sure it was all gone for good. When I got home I decided to see if any program could bring it back. Surprisingly I came across a bunch. A few claimed to be free and let me see the files that had been wiped from the card, but when I tried to recover the files it asked me to purchase the software which I gladly would have, but I decided to see if I could find a free one. I came across Recuva and it worked like a charm, and best of all it was free! I would say this is a must have for all DSLR owners, and apparently ipod owners too. Not too say that you shouldn’t be careful when deleting things but just also breath easy knowing nothing is lost for good, at least on flash memory devices. That is to say however that you shouldn’t take any new pictures or video after deleting, at that point you are overwriting the data and the old stuff really will be gone! So just be careful and avoid all the headache in the first place, upload it all right away and back it up! Here’s what your really looking for, the link to the program Recuva. Enjoy!
