What we should do to solve the data loss problem is not to be panic at first. It is really likely to feel anxious when lose files saved on the micro CF card, such as the micro CF card being formatted. All files and folders would be disappeared after the formatting. But there still is nothing needs to be worried about, because those lost files no matter how important and precious could be found back. What we need is data recovery software. Here is an example below:
I accidentally formatted my micro CF card last Sunday and consequently lost all contents which saved on it previously. Those files are useful for me and I do not want to lose them any more. But till now I have not retrieve those losses yet. What should I do? Is there any possible way to unformat memory card and get back lost pictures from the memory card? Any help would be appreciated. -Jane
