CardRescue for Mac5.63

Recovers deleted pictures from memory stick, etc.

What is CardRescue for Mac

CardRescue is photo-recovery software. It recovers deleted pictures from memory sticks, SD cards, Compact-Flash cards, xD Picture cards, and various flash-memory cards used by digital cameras. It also recovers lost photos from reformatted or damaged memory cards.

Most digital cameras do not completely wipe digital pictures from the storage card when the user deletes images or uses the "Format" operation, so it is possible for CardRescue software to rescue the lost photos from the storage card. For corrupted memory cards or memory-card error, CardRescue will try to access the memory card in low level (raw mode) and bypass the original file system, so in many cases, it is able to recover the lost photos.

I cannot rate an app that doesn't do what it is intended. Nor will I purchase an app without proving that it works as intended. So I ran cardrescue on a 16GB sd card. To be fair I only tried it twice on the same card. Both times the progress bar goes to 50% ca. and then it appears to stall. Waiting all day didn't give any results. So no go for me. It does say in the app description..."it will try to..." and that's not a promise of success. Cards vary and have all kinds of manufacturer quirks that can be extremely complicated for recovery. Memory card standards vary and use different hardware indexing then a hard drive which is more straight forward when it comes to recovery. I have read reports that it is impossible to completely destroy data on some cards. Even a "secure Delete" won't go through all the levels and indexing of the hardware to completely and securely delete. Just re-appropriate the space.

I purchased CardRescue to recover photos I mistakenly reformatted from my Canon D60. I wasn't able to preview the photos as they were shot in Raw format and you can only preview JPG but the files were there so I bought it. The files cannot be opened in any application- IView, Preview, Photoshop CS2. Waste of money and time. Don't waste yours if you can't preview your photos first.

This app saved my bacon. It found all of the "missing" files on my xD card and recovered them. It worked quickly and listed all the files it found. But it makes you purchase it before it will save the files to your hard drive.
