After i try to recover my pictures from SD card with many programs i discover this recovery program. From my 1GB SD card with 540 pictures , 480 recovered.
The recovery rate is >90%. That is great but not perfect. some imporatnt pictures may still missing.
A 1Gb XD card was moved from the camera to an electronic picture frame. The frame controls were used to rotate some of the pictures. When we tried to download the pictures to a computer, it showed 4 each of the first 200, but none of the last group that hadn't been backed up. ZADIR was able to recover all 323 pictures, including the 87 new ones. It's a free program that does what it says it will. The simple, clean interface works well. It took about an hour for the recovery, which I consider a small inconvenience.
This thing was no better than searching my entire hard drive for hours to find something but nothing.
My sister's 2GB Elite Pro Compact Flash card(from her Canon digital EOS Rebel) was completely trashed. Windows Explorer could only find three images intact. There were numerous folders, but they all had gibberish names and Windows Explorer couldn't open them due to "syntax, etc" errors. Zero Assumption found 718 images, of which only 30 or so were corrupt. I was worried about limitations, watermarks, or other nuisances, but this program was a champ.
It took about two hours for the program to analyze/salvage the contents of the 2GB card, but the program runs fine unattended, saving the images to a folder that I designated. The $99 is a steep price, but I think if push came to shove, my sister would have paid that price if she knew she could salvage 95% + of her photos. As it is, I'm going to see if I can donate $20 to the software makers...I am that impressed.
This program was easy to use and recovered a few lost photos, for which I was very grateful.
The program claimed to have recovered over 5000 images - more than would actually fit on my SD card! Most of the image files "recovered" were unreadable as images. Out of 1400 photos lost due to camera malfunction, it recovered only 10.
I accidently deleted about 20 photos on a 1-gig memory card. The recovery process took a while b/c of the large card size, but, except for the photos that were corrupted when I overwrote them, my photos were restored.
Time involved with a large size memory card, but worth the effort.
I had 2 cards that were corrupted and I thought that I had lost priceless pictures forever. But this software got them all back.
Easy to Use.
Can recover most(>90%) of photo and .mov file at original resolution.
Quick ( scan 64M SD card in just 10 min)
Several photo can not be found.
None for xD memory card that got corrupted by WinXP.
It did not pull up any pictures from an xD memory card after searching for a 1/2hour.
Loved it. I tried another program that was to recover all files and it found the pics (multigenerational pics of very close family members separated over 30 years) but they were corrupted.
This program found all the pictures and restored them perfectly!!!! Worth paying for.
It was very slow, but hey, you can't rush greatness and most people in this situation care more about results than the time to get there.
