Best Photo recovery tool??? Sister In Law needs help!
Posted by: spacescape

Sister in Law just dropped by an Olympus FE-230 with a corrupt XD Picture card. She did get an All in One USB Card reader and said it asked if she wanted to format it. She is pretty sure she DID NOT format the card. She did try to view them on the camera but it can't view the images there either. So, I'm looking at a couple of utilities to recover and want to know if anyone knows of one that works best.

I did download Card Rescue, Recoverit and Data_rescue. All of these require you pay for the full version so I figured I'd ask which one to purchase.

Thanks.
Bill

What's interesting is that a quick Google reveals some companies are playing fast-and-loose with competitor's names, with "Card Rescue" and "Recoverit" showing up in strange places online.

At any rate, many if not most appear to have trial software. No?

Check out PhotoRec, it's free, but you need to run it from terminal, no Mac GUI for it.

It used to be that Sandisk included a serial number for a one year subscription of RecsuePRO Deluxe with every card of a certain size.

Try putting a good Sd card in Olympus. Then pop it out and pop in your “bad” and see if it can be read. Or hook up Olympus to computer USB port, with bad card in it and see if you can read the card. Or try reading the bad card in a Windows computer.
