How To Recover Data From My Memory Card

How to recover data from my memory card, SD card, microSD card, CF card, or other digital media device?

Recover files deleted from an SD card in as few as 3 steps.

Recovering deleted files from an SD card can depend on how the card has been handled since the files were discovered as missing.

Please follow the steps below to use SanDisk RescuePRO to recover your deleted SD card files.
You should not continue to use the media with the deleted files.
Do not try to write data back to the media before or during a recovery.
Do not reformat the media or try to run any repair tools on the media.

  1. Start RescuePRO® and choose what you want to recover. Photos, Audio/Video, or other Files..
  2. Choose your removable media from the list (use the default options the first time RescuePRO® is run and use the drive letter that represents your media or directly the device in physical mode if no drive letter has been assigned to your media). Select START to start the scanning process.
  3. Once the scan completes you will receive a list of recovered files. The files are saved to the hard drive automatically. Click Output Folder to view the files.
