Quick format in camera or computer? Chances are good that you can recover the pictures. Full format done? Go and book the trip again ...

If you have the SanDisk RescuePro software that comes with higher end cards from SanDisk, you should be able to recover files. In fact that software works for any media, hard disks too.

there is still hope to recover the photo from the dead hdd, but i think its gonna cost a lot. i save all my photo and other work files in a NAS at home running RAID 1 to avoid such cases.

its not just having 2 external hdd, get a RAID 1 NAS. firstly coping files to 2 hdd is time consuming (1000 photo about 2000 sec = 33mins, 2hdd = 66mins), and then at alot of time we will be lazy to do it and forgot about it.

NAS runs on a network, i map the drive on my pc and everything is automatic from the moment i import my files from the camera and mirroring on the 2 hdd. it even warn be if one hdd is faulty on down. $200 more for avoiding regrets, i think its worth it.

Hi Alan
is your NAS Raid 1 system with 2 HDD only costing $200? can share what system you purchase and capacity of the HDD?
Tks

Raid is more for redundancy than as backup.;)

If you accidentally deleted the files, both HDs are affected (which is TS situation). There is also possibility of Raid controller failure and you'll need to get a exact same one in order to access the HDs.

Quick or full format affect the data exactly the same. What full format does that quick doesn't is a full scan.

Try RECUVE, as mentioned in one of the reply above.
However if will take quite a long time for the software to recover the formatted files. Better than lossing them I guess. Good luck ;)

Sometimes I wonder about the real benefits of RAID 1. While it protects data loss in the event of a single hard disk failure. But more often than not, it is the consumer raid controller that fails first. Also when a single harddisk fails, you are likely not able to access to the remaining harddisk until you replaced the failed harddisk and have the raid array up again. And if you take out the remaining hdd and plug it to a PC running Linux/Win/Mac, it will likely to be not recognised.

I will just get a single hdd NAS that allows for scheduled back-up to an external usb device on FAT32.

Back to the TS' problem.

Sandisk provide RescuePro

Transcend provide Photo Recovery

There are a lot of data recovery software on the Internet. You can see which works for you. I am also trying to recover one photo which I have erased and written over. Will revert if I am successful.
