    Hey all

    A few weeks ago my hard drive died and I lost all my backed up data on it. I had some photos which I really needed for work on there, but I had deleted them from the 4GB flash drive in my camera.

    My question is this: is it possible to somehow recover the data from the flash drive that was in my digital camera? Its a long shot I know, but its the only option I have.

    Thx
    FAXA.

    yes, and there are freeware programs that can do it too, all you need is to use something like "recover my files" and have the flash disc set up like a normal drive

    Ok thanks for the relpies. I've managed to get the files back but they are all corrupt..

    Does anyone know a way to 'un-corrupt' a .jpg file xD?

    Thanks for the help!
