"Quick recovery of accidentally trashed photos"

May 27, 2013  |  By anne18--2008

 |  Version: CardRaider 2.0.3

Pros

Easy to use, comes with pdf manual.

Cons

The manual has no instructions for stopping the scan after the lost images are found; I didn't want to wait for it to go back several months so I pressed Cancel after the lost images had uploaded. It worked.

Summary

Never attempt to edit photos when you're tired! I thought I was dragging one poorly framed shot to iPhoto Trash but I evidently dragged the whole roll and then, because I was surprised there were so many photos in the Trash, deleted them to free up space on the hard drive. I was dismayed when I went back to Last Roll and discovered it was empty.

I looked at several recovery options over the course of the next day and went with CardRaider because I thought it would be easier to recover the images from the camera card, which hadn't been used since I uploaded to the computer, than from hard drive, which I had to use to do my research. It was a good decision; the recovery process was very easy. Because I ran the demo first, some duplicates were in the photos that I transferred, but those will be easy to delete (very carefully!) another day.

"Must have for anyone that owns a digital camera"

February 13, 2012  |  By davidlevi1982

 |  Version: CardRaider 2.0.3

Pros

Very simple to use graphical interface. Technical support is phenomenal. Has saved my photos and videos multiple times. Unlimited free upgrades to latest versions.

Cons

Not for PC.

Summary

CardRaider is a must for any person who uses Mac and owns a digital camera, consumer or professional. I have used it multiple times to save priceless photos that I either deleted from the card by accident or from issues with iPhoto saying the photos transferred and then crashing only to discover that the photos are no where to be found. Most importantly, it comes with unlimited upgrades to newer versions and the support team is absolutely phenomenal.

"Best Option to Recover Photos"

January 18, 2009  |  By scriptures4life

 |  Version: CardRaider 2.0.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
It sucks to pay for a data recovery program, but hey, when you need it you need it. Someone pressed "format" on our Sony camera and bang, all the photos were gone. I tried Boomerang, Exif Untrasher, FileSalvage, Image Rescue, PhotoRescue, and StellarPhoenix. Although StellarPhoenix WAS able to find the photos, it's interface is much less elegant, and it costs about 8x more. Although it took over an hour and a half to scan my 4 GB CF card (1.42 G4 Mac Mini), it works great. It even names the files in order of the date they were taken. What can I say, it works great and was DEFINITELY worth the $20. And, they apparently give updates for life (although it works perfectly now so I don't see what they could upgrade other than new OS X version compatibility.)

Cheers
Danny

"Just Worksâ?¢"

July 27, 2008  |  By Grasshopper1965

 |  Version: CardRaider 2.0.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I don't think my job was too complex, but this program found every deleted photo on my SD card plus some more that had been "deleted" earlier. I couldn't be more pleased. Direct input into iPhoto was much appreciated. This is very much a Mac program--look and feel were perfect.

"super duper stupedous"

May 10, 2008  |  By versiontracker-2008

 |  Version: CardRaider 2.0.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Friend got a "please reformat" msg from his camera. I took the card from him before he did so and placed it in a reader. No files in the "dcim" or similar folders.

Tried demo version of card raider and it showed me hundreds of pictures. Purchased the full copy and saved them all.

Which.. included wedding photos they thought had been hopelessly lost somewhere or another.

highly recommended

"Saved my bacon."

November 13, 2007  |  By Macleod

 |  Version: CardRaider 1.2.3

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
In a design meeting I said, "I have the perfect photo. I took it two weeks ago." I get back to the shop and realize that in one of my (counterproductive) cleaning jags I have deleted the photo from my computer and reformatted the CF card. Ugghh.

I looked at all the shareware recovery products and saw that CardRaider was the ticket. Half the price of most of it's competition and I like the user interface better.

I recovered all the photos from the CF card, wiped the cold sweat from my brow, and poured myself a beer.

Great product. Thanks.

"Does what is says on the tin"

October 22, 2007  |  By cjcarman

 |  Version: CardRaider 1.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
"Somehow" our Canon IXUS deleted the snaps my wife took on a trip to NYC - granted she may have had something to do with the pics going missing. Regardless, these were rather important pics to her. I downloaded (and subsequently bought) Card Raider. In a few clicks, her snaps had been recovered. The wife was happy again.

Easy to use and intuitive software that recovered the deleted pics. Just what we needed - and for only £10 a great bargain. I am sure it will come in handy again.

"It Found Every Photo!"

September 29, 2007  |  By itsmarkda

 |  Version: CardRaider 1.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I was downloading photos from my camera when the camera's battery died. From that point on, the card would mount, but it would say there were no images on it. I downloaded Card Raider and ran it under the trial mode. It immediately began finding photos, including some from months ago that had been deleted but not written over. The photos in trial mode are viewable, but they have a watermark on them. I paid for the software and re-ran it. All my photos were recovered, and it was well worth the money.

I highly recommend Card Raider.

"It works very well"

August 25, 2007  |  By gerritnn

 |  Version: CardRaider 1.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
In my case, I had a 1 gb SD card with 709 Kodak photographs. By some strange mechanisms in my camera, a lot of photographs had been given the strangest dates and times, and now seemed lost.
Graphic Converter and other photo software (were officially (Kodak and iView) only showed around 190 files that also Mac OS Terminal could find, among which a 170 they declared corrupted.
Boomerang did a good job showing all the FAT structures, and showed it was probably possible to recover a lot of other photographs. Trouble was: it did not show a preview picture of a file it said was a "raw" jpg, whatever that is, of more thatn 1 MB.
Card Raider demo just started scanning the disk and showed a preview of every picture on the disk. Seeing 709 pictures appearing onmy computer screen instead of the 20 I saw before, was a great relief. In an hour I had bought and downloaded the offical version, scanned the disk again, and had all 709 files in my computer.
Now I just need to get me another camera, that won't corrupt my sd card again....
