Had a interesting situation this week. Step 1. Take a bunch of pictures of a recent trip. Step 2. Wait a couple days as life gets busy and forget to download pictures right away. Step 3. Try to download pictures, and images are not on the CF (compact flash). Step 4. Panic!!!! Step 5. Find out about San Disk Recovery Software Step 6. Amazed. Step 7. Send off images to happy client of the images from his trip.
This software was very easy to use and taught me a couple things about my CF. If you ever get into a pinch and you need images off a flash drive you accidentally erased check out google for image recovery software and depending on the flash drive your using there is software out there to help.
