*This memory card should not be kept using before performing data recovery, since any new file stored inside it may erase your lost data.
*This memory card should not be the destination device of the restored data in case that the rescued data will be lost again. *Never save all important card data on only one memory card or drive again.

How Does Data Recovery Software Works?

Let’s compare your memory card to a book and explain the data recovery tuffs for you. As we all know, a book often consists of two parts: the table of contents (which is just like the memory card file directory and name) and the actual contents (which is just like the memory card data). When we are deleting some card data or formatting a memory card, the computer or memory card electronic device will only attempt to change the table contents of this book and inform the reader that there is some blank space that can be written with new knowledge. But, unless the new knowledge is added there, the original book contents would be there forever. Therefore, before the original card data is overwritten by anything new, the original data is absolutely possible to be restored with the help of a data recovery tool. That’s also exactly how data recovery software works.
Therefore, I hope you can remember not to add anything else on this memory card in case of further data loss.
