Why lost photos can be restored? In fact, deleted pictures are not really gone, but you can not see it. For example, when photographs are removed from your Sony digital camera, photograph themselves are not deleted; just the index entries for the image files are deleted. Space containing the deleted pictures is now marked as system available space, so that any new files can be written to this space. Once the new files are written to this space, the removed pictures will be completely disappeared. Therefore, once found important pictures or video files lost, you should stop taking new pictures with your digital camera immediately. Sony photo recovery software can find lost photos by using a special algorithm, and then get them back with ease.

Tips: ways to prevent data loss

 

1. The best way to prevent data loss is to backup important files frequently. It is recommended that you should have two copies at least, one on your computer and the other on the external memory.
2. Think three seconds when delete a file. Do not make a decision to delete files when you are in muddle-headedness. Try not to use the "Delete All" button, and also try not to do the format operation.

3. Do not put important data on the system disk, including computer desktop. When there is a system crash or virus infection, the first casualty is the system disk and the data on it.
