Undelete pictures on your camera for Free
If you've deleted a picture or a bunch of
pictures on your camera, do nothing else with the camera.
Don't take any more pictures. Don't try to use the camera's
built-in menu. Don't reformat the hard drive.
Download and install PC Inspector Smart Recovery 4.5
2) If you have a card reader attached to your PC, take the
affected memory card out of your camera, flip the write-protect
"lock" tab so nothing can be written to the card, and put it in
the card reader. If you don't have a card reader, attach the
camera to your PC with the appropriate cable. In either case, if
Windows pops up and offers to do something for you (such as
copying the files into your PC), click the X button to close the
AutoPlay dialog box.
3) Click Start, Programs (in Vista, it's All Programs), PC
Inspector Smart Recovery. You get the PC Inspector Smart
Recovery main dialog box.
4) In the left pane, choose the drive that contains your
camera's memory card, or choose the camera itself. This can be a
bit challenging because PC Inspector doesn't give you many
details about the drives. But you can use Windows Explorer to
find the correct drive letter.
5) In the middle pane, choose the type of file you want to
recover. Chances are it's a .jpg.
6) In the right pane, navigate to a place where you would like
to store the reconstituted files.
7) Click Start. This will take a while, but you can watch the
program's progress by looking at the folder that's being filled
with recovered photos.
8) When it's done, click the X button to get out of the program,
flip the "lock" write protection tab back to its normal
position, and put the card back in your camera.
