What issues we often meet?
“Hi, so I’ve recently deleted a lot of photos by accident from my 1GB Memory Stick PRO Duo while it was in my Sony digital camera. Could someone recommend a Memory Stick Recovery utility that can instantly recover my lost pictures?”
“I have a Sony Cybershot Digital Camera with a 256 MB Memory Stick PRO as memory card. When I ran out of room on memory stick I would save the pictures onto a CD and then format the stick to make room for new pictures. It appears, however, that I may have lost the CDs that I put the pictures onto. I am wondering if it would be possible to go back and recover memory stick data.”
If you are also finding the solutions for the issues mentioned above, you can find the answer here. The first and most important thing you have to do is do nothing on the memory stick, stop using it on your cameras, mobiles or PCs. Because anything you do is likely to make your data unrecoverable. Several days ago, I met the similar problem and found a helpful memory stick recovery utility—Tenorshare Data Recovery. It enables you to recover deleted data from memory stick or retrieve data from formatted, corrupted memory stick.
Follow the steps below to learn how easily it works:
Firstly, Download a Memory Stick Data Recovery tool, install and launch it. Insert your memory stick into a card reader and plug the card reader into your computer.
Secondly, if you lost data due to deletion, click “Deleted Recovery”; if you accidently formatted your stick and lost data, click “Formatted Recovery”.
Thirdly, choose your memory stick on the list of “Partitions”. And click “Scan”. For formatted recovery, you should do one more step that you need to choose the file system your memory stick used before formatting.
Fourthly, this program will search all recoverable files on your storage media. All your files will be shown in the next interface. Unfold each folder and highlight one of them, and the files on each folder will be listed. For picture format, you can click its name on the file information line to preview it.
Fifthly, tick the files you would like to recover, and click “Recover”.
Sixthly, choose a path on your computer to save these recovered files. An indicator pops up to mind you not to save them on your memory stick directly. (Do not save in C:/ drive!)
Memory stick data recovery is quiet easy if you find an excellent application. Never worry about data loss on the memory stick of your cameras, mobiles again.
