    very doubtful. The only way to recover it is if the particular data sectors were not re-used yet. If you have used and re-used the CF... I doubt you can find any intact "old" data anymore.

    As Rashkae mentioned: if the sectors of the media are still intact then chances are good for image recovery. But: a single image is stretched over lots of sectors (example: 15 MByte of image file and sectors of 4kByte .. do the Maths how many sectors would be involved) - if only a single sector has been reused for the writing of a new file the old file gone, period. Regardless whether Mac or Win, regardless which software you use.
