    There is no way to regain back lost resolution if you have saved the original file. Not even those commercial interpolating software can help.

    AJ23 is right, you have saved over the orignal, you cannot get it back.

    even if you had formated your SD card, you might still be able to recover the image. try lexar image rescue.

    does that mean it's 'dangerous' to sell cf cards?

    just thinking out loud, will it be possible to do a fdisk on a cf card?
    if possible, then all data will be wipeout i think.

    OT : Doing a simple format or fdisk won't prevent the files from being recovered. Need to use one of those secure delete/format software which writes over the data on the whole disk/card mulltiple times. (you can get free/open source ones like dban)

    OOT : A totally foolproof way of preventing data being recovered is to physically destroy the cards - but that some may say is bordering on paranoid.

    since you have Handy Recovery, try it on your formatted SD card again, no harm

    you can always fill up the card with rubbish for one or 2 times before selling, or simply do a complete data strip it...

    please sell me your flash memory card lah, I want the one that had the raunchy picts on at one time.

    To completely delete/wipe out any previous files, you can use the erase function in Image Rescue, and do the process 7 times. That is the protocol for the US Defense Department to securely delete all files in HDD that are to be disposed of.

    actually, I think 7 times is a minimum...read somewhere that you have to do it like 20 times to be really secure...

    Just destroy the CF cards .... forget about the software thing of wipe or rewrite over etc etc....

    Cards / Hard disks are cheap anyway.

    Many options to destroy too - magnetize, burn and melt, let ur dog chew , flash it down (if it is small enough) etc , sure much more effective than those softwares (that securely delete your data)- all free of charge at your own efforts. Most likely unable to recover as the physical material properties have changed when it is damaged very badly
