Some time ago I deleted many pictures from my camera, by accident... I did not have a chance to copy them to any storage device earlier, and a part of them was very precious to me. So I decided to find a way to recover them! My files had never dissapeared that way before, but I knew for sure that I should not use the flash card for taking new photos if I want deleted photos to be recovered, otherwise there’s a poor chance to recover the files.

I searched through Internet looking for the cure, and I realized that the most popular programs are rather good, but they all cost good money…

As I use Nikon camera, I contacted Nikon office in Moscow asking if they provide such service as photo recovery to their clients. They said they didn’t, but they gave me a very good advice: go to the website of the flash (memory) card producer!

Normally such companies have software for files recovery, and such programs are typically absolutely free, Nikon guys said to me.

That was completely knew information as, honestly, websites of flash cards producers have never been of any interest to me!

I followed the advice given, and I found a great program at the website of a flash card producer, simple and free of charge! And my photos and videos are now recovered, I’m so happy about that!

So if one day you delete the files you need - don’t be sad, there’s a chance to see them back again! Take many hot summer photos and never loose them!
