Is there any way? I thought I had uploaded all my photos using Windows’ photo importer and stupidly formatted the card and did not even realize the problem until now. I’ve taken about 30 photos on the newly reformatted card. I feel a bit like an idiot. SD memory is so cheap that it’s really just better to start with a new card.
Try Recuva. I’ve used this successfully twice now on other people’s SD cards. Hopefully you only did a quick format / erase.
Also photorec. It’s probably less user friendly, but it does the job.
Thumbs up to both of those.
With an SD card you want to do the deep scan for recovery in Recuva. I also recommend.
