Common Scenarios for deletion of image files

  • Accidentally erased images on camera: You might have accidentally erased few pictures while previewing the pictures on your digital camera. Or else, you might have instantly deleted some essential photos to free up the storage space and later you realized that the photos were important to you. In such case, there is no way to restore erased pictures other than an image recovery tool.

  • Formatted the CF card by mistake: If you have accidentally formatted the Compact Flash Card instead of clicking on some other option then you may end up in loss of photos. This is mainly because, formatting is a process of creating the new directory structure by deleting all the images. Therefore, when you format the CF cards, all the images including other files get deleted resulting in loss of pictures.

  • Deleted photos from a CF card on the PC: If you have deleted images from the CF card on your PC then you cannot restore those pictures from Recycle Bin or Trash. When the pictures or any files are erased from external storage devices on the PC then are not moved to Recycle Bin or Trash instead they bypass the Recycle Bin. Therefore, accidental deletion of images from the CF card using any file management options results in loss of images

  • Virus attacks: There are some viruses, which causes unexpected deletion of photos from the memory cards. Sometimes, these viruses corrupt the memory card by making all the pictures including other data inaccessible.

Immediate precautionary actions are as follows:

  • Remove the CF card from the camera and keep it in a safe place
  • Stop using the Compact Flash card to avoid overwriting of erased images thereby protect your essential photos
  • Avoid saving recovered images on the same memory card
