I have iolo's search&recover software but it has not worked well for me (does not detect photos I need to undelete). Are there better apps for recovering deleted photos from cards?
I tried cardrecovery.com which seemed to do a good job of finding deleted photos, but the UI for previewing is a nightmare - you have to select photos 6 at time from a long drop-down list, then click the 'Preview' button to see thumbs. Whoa, I have over a thousand candidate photos... - yikes!
I use the rather unknown paid product from recoverdatatools.com. It recovers files perhaps 95% of the time from all kinds of formatted and repartitioned drives. It's probably less easier to use, but that is not my main concern when recovering data. I tend to recover the whole drive and and pick what I want from the resuting image. My biggest problem is that RAW image types are not included in its image search function, but in data recovery I trade nothing for the abilty to actually recover the data.
Thanks George - I tried your recommendation, along with a few others, and in the course of trying them, I figured out how to use the one I already have properly - duh!
Thanks (and a sorry to iolo and retraction - their "seacrch&recover" works real nice once the man behind the keyboard pulls his head out...)
