    I accidentally deleted a photo from my sd card last night and have been having trouble recovering it. I deleted it with the camera (a kodak) rather than on a computer or card reader. I have tried a number of photo/file recovery programs which have recovered numerous photos which I intentionally deleted up to a couple of years ago, but can't seem to get the one deleted just last night. Does it sound like this shot is gone for good or is it possible a better program would be able to recover it. The programs I tried included one called cardrecovery and one called file recover I think. Let me know if anyone has suggestions.

    I have done a little more research with no success. I have used almost all of the programs listed at http://www.ultimateslr.com/memory-card-recovery.php and the ones that provide previews do not contain the image I'm looking for. Most have the same # of images listed for what they can uncover. I'm thinking that this file is gone for good but I don't know how likely it is that a file is completely unrecoverable.

    Any suggestions for a different program to try when others aren't working?

    ps. A program called "digital picture recovery" found a number of tif images along with the usual but the tifs did not provide previews. Is it possible that my lost image is contained in one of these tifs? I don't want to buy the product and find out the tifs are unreadable.

    Maybe call/e-mail the card manufacturer and ask them.

    the tif files may in fact be RAW files. BadCopy Pro (which I purchased) has never failed me yet. So long as you have not written to the card since the error you should be ok.

    Was it a RAW file or a jpg? The preview will possibly not show because you'll need to rename the file to _IMG0001.CR2 rather than .tif

    I'd bet it is there though (so long as the card's not been written on).......

    thanks for the tip. I'll check out badcopy pro. I took about 20 photos after the file was deleted so I'm assuming that means the card has been written on. Which from your post I gather could mean the photo is lost forever?

    Yes I'm afraid if you have written to the card after deletion, chances are it may be lost.
