May I know which software you have? I've tried a few freewares (if you read
my previous posts) and none of them could recover those photos which I've lost on the day itself. I'm close to giving up trying to retrieve those photos seems like an unusual case ba cos how come my photos can just disappear halfway while taking and the softwares can't recover anything (I repeat, excluding old photos taken on other days before the event happened)... It's like my sd card has no track of those photos at all. Sigh man...
Have you tried SanDisk's recovery software yet?
To put it in layman's terms, each memory card/hard disk drive has many sections to them. Files (or info) are stored in those sections. A file that's big are stored in, say, 1000 sections. A file that's small are stored in, say, 100 sections. Even after you've deleted the file, those sections become 'empty', though they aren't really empty (the sections of the files are still there).. just that the system that reads the card thinks that they are already empty. So if you write a new file over those sections, that's when the file really gets deleted.
what lypklypk is saying, in role play:
Information in the hard disks are like HDB flats. Many many HDB Buildings. What you see on Windows Explorer when you view the files, are simply the addresses to any of the HDB flats, so that the computer knows which part of the hard disk to retrieve information from.
When you delete, you do not really delete the HDB flats. you are simply taking away the addresses. So, information is still there, but no way for a computer to link to the files stored within.
Hence, you need a file recovery software.
I'm getting confused..... I already tried a file recovery software. It helped me to recover a thousand over files but none of them were the photos which disappeared in that day. That's why I doubt other softwares will be able to track from my sd card
Yes, I think the images that you want to recover has already been overwritten by some other files and therefore the recovery software is not able to help. The files that you have recovered are the ones that are still there and not overwritten.

Anyway, thanks IsenGrim! I'll probably give one last try... Will try out the software
