How to Retrieve Lost Pictures and Video Files from

Sony Digital Camera?

With years of experience in the field of CCD and CMOS image sensors, the Sony Corp has a great advantage in digital camera manufacturing. Over the past decade, the Sony Corp launched a lot of excellent digital cameras, such as α series digital SLR camera, Cyber-shot compact digital camera, Lens-Style Camera and more. These digital cameras often use the memory cards to save photos and movies, and common storage cards include SD/SDHC/SDXC, micro SDHC/SDXC/TF and memory stick. As the memory card is very thin and easy to damage, so the data loss is inevitable.

Common memory card data loss may be caused by the following reasons:
(1) Physical damage: such as broken, water damaged, etc..
(2) Logical corruption: for example, storage card can not be accessed.
(3) Virus infection: the memory card is attacked by the virus, resulting in data loss.
(4) Deletion or formatting cause file missing.

If the files are accidentally deleted or the memory card is formatted and cause all data lost, the professional data recovery software can help you easily restore them. If a memory card is infected with a virus, you’d better clear the virus first with the anti-virus software, and then perform the data recovery. However, if the memory card is physically damaged, data recovery will become extremely difficult. At this point, you may need to seek help from a professional data recovery organization.

Although data recovery software can help you recover lost files, you still need to pay attention to some tips, so that you can get the maximum likelihood of retrieving all the missing files. Once you accidentally remove important data, first thing first, you’d better stop using your digital camera or memory card immediately. Once you continue to take new photos or write new data into the memory card, the original data of the missing files may be covered by the new files. Once overwritten, the missing files are completely lost.
