    Reformatted SDHC card lost photos

    I took some great shots with my M9 and forgot to offload to my imac and then reformatted my card in camera and then took some more photos.

    what is the best way to recover my lost photos?

    btw. since I took photos after the reformat if there a good chance that some photos will be lost due to being written over?

    thank you

    Any of the available photo rescue software will recover anything thats not overwritten . Normally there is a free coupon in the box with a new card for the software . Go to the lexar or san disk websites .

    Good luck with the recovery. Don't be hard on yourself, all possible mistakes can happen to all photographers sooner or later, but if you made it once you are probably unlikely to make it again.

    You can also use Amrev data recovery software. May be you can download it and have a try. It can do format recovery, unformat and recover deleted files emptied from Recycle Bin. However, if you have overwritten you data, it may not help you.
    good luck

    I was able to recover files using this free text based software:

    PhotoRec - CGSecurity

    Good luck
