Recovering Accidentally Deleted Photos from SD Cards

It is not uncommon that we delete some or all of our photos accidently from the SD cards of digital cameras. But with some precautions and some speedy action, we can recover them easily. What you need is only a good Photo recovery tool like Kernel for Digital Media.

Why it is possible to recover deleted photos from SD cards?

Digital cameras store their photos on memory cards. These photos can become inaccessible after accidental deletion, damage or formatting of the card, improper ejection of the card etc. As in the case of hard drives, most of the memory cards will not remove deleted data instantly from it after the deletion of data. Instead, they mark this space as available for storage.
So the removed data exist there till the card use it for the storage of new data added by you. The situation is not different if you have performed a normal formatting of the SD card. So take care to stop adding more photos to the card when you realize that you have deleted some valuable photos accidentally.

Why it is relatively easy to recover photos from SD cards?

Recovery of data from SD cards is considered easy due to:
  • SD cards have small memory capacity, and so store only a limited number of files
  • files are not fragmented usually
  • SD cards mostly contain only two types of files- photos and movies
