I’ve written about photo recovery before. Last vacation I had to open this box of tricks again to get the pictures back from a delete all operation.
My first attempt was with photorec as described in my post. But that failed to recover any photo.
The next tools I tried all offered free trails but required up to $99 for actual recovery. My 9 pictures are valuable but not this much.
Since I’m on a Mac now I used the tools that are available:
- [terminal] diskutil list
, as described here to find the device to create an image from
- [terminal] dd if=/dev/disk2 of=camera.img conv=noerror
, create the image from the device as described here
- Parallels with Windows 8.1, since the free tools are all on Windows …
- osfmount to mount the image from step 2 in Windows
- Now recover the pictures with recuva
