Memory Card Photo Recovery: How to Recover Pictures from an SD Card
Think of your SD card as a long, sandy beach. Imagine each file living in that card is a tiny bit of metal—a wristwatch, or a coin, or a lost set of keys or something. As long as that partition has file definitions, those bits of metal are lying right on the surface, where they shine and sparkle in the sunlight. You can easily pick them up, move them around, and take them with you. But when those file definitions disappear, it’s like those metal trinkets have all been buried under the sand. How will you find them now?
Now, data recovery is no day at the beach. So instead of imagining yourself lounging on the beach, strawberry daiquiri in one hand, a good book in the other as the summer sun beats down on you and gulls lazily glide overhead… imagine yourself with a metal detector.
