    Hi guys,
    I just lost many of my pics from my mobile's 32GB memory card microSD.

    The only thing I had done was , as my 2GB memory card was not working so i removed my 32Gb card from my phone and inserted my 2Gb meory card and I formatted it from my phone,
    but then when I inserted my 32Gb card back in I lost most of my images folder files along with other folders.

    I need them badly.

    Which software can do that for me.

    Please advise.

    Thanks.

    Have you tried turning your phone off & then restarting it? Otherwise I'd try the computer if have a card reader. You may have to buy a microSD to SD card adapter or a card reader to usb connection.

    I forgot to mention reboot the phone with the card installed in the phone prior to restarting. If that doesn't work try rebooting it without the card & then put it in after restarting it. Just don't format it!

    I have never heard of any software to help in this situation.

    As far as I know there's no way to recover files from a memory card. Same goes with jump drives and other solid state storages. I hope for your sake it's just the phone not seeing the pics.

    This is really sad.
    That we can not recover lost files from memroy card which I really did not even delete manually.
    I just replaced the card with other and when put my original card i lost my pics,
    actually those pics were about how i build my pc right from bringing from market to putting stuff inside cabinet.It's really sad for me.
    Well Recuva also did not work, it just showed me files already inside card............
    Is there any other method to get those files?

    Because of the way flash memory works, the only way to recover lost data is if it has been removed from the file system but not overwritten on the card. If the flash memory was corrupted and/or the data overwritten, it is gone for good. This is because flash memory has a state for every bit unlike hard drives which store data magnetically on a platter. I'm afraid the odds are stacked in favor of you not being able to get anything usable from the card.

    The best you can do is learn from this experience: use the USB cable that came with the device and copy all data off it periodically. I recommend not moving flash memory cards if you can help it because even that process can damage them.

    No worries!!!!! Exactly its a good presence of mind because data once overwritten cant be retrieved back. Fortunately, if you have not stored any new data on your phone. Then, without any hesitation quickly make use of Remo Recover software to easily retrieve deleted or lost files from memory card within few clicks.

    are you familiar with linux system? I used linux system to recover HDD, USB stick alot of times.... I have more successful rate than in windows OS.

    You dont have to install linux. You can download, and just run their live CD's.

    Highly recommended

    Linux mint , or

    http://www.linuxmint.com/download.php

    Ubuntu

    http://www.ubuntu.com/download


    it requires lots of readings though but worth a try. It feels great after recovering your precious photos....

    some readings for you.
