Everyone has had that horrifying moment where, when flipping through menus on a digital camera or tablet, they've accidentally pressed the button labeled "Delete All." The good news is that SD cards can use many of the venerable techniques for file recovery that old floppy disks did back in the 1990s.

Method 1

First and foremost, once you've realized you've done a mass file deletion on an SD Card, remove the card from the device and don't write any data to it. The way file deletion works in most file systems, including the FAT file system used on SD cards, is to delete the first two characters of the file name, but leave the rest of the data intact until those sectors need to be re-used by something else.

Method 2

Some, but not all, devices have an undelete function – read through the manual for your device and see if the software included has this capability. If it does, use it to recover your data. This is particularly handy if you deleted your photos on Windows 8 or Mac OS X Mavericks, as those operating systems have built-in file recovery capabilities with the Recycle Bin and Trash.

If you can not recover pictures from SD card, you can try CardRecovery which is an excellent SD card and photo recovery software. It concentrates in recovering many cards and removable storage such as SD Card.

  • After accidentally deleting files from a memory card, do not attempt to copy additional files onto the card before attempting file recovery as this will overwrite the files and make them much more difficult if not impossible to recover.
