Frequently Asked Questions:
A. Here is a list of the supported file formats in Photo Recovery Guru
A. In short, it will work on any digital camera which does not secure-erase its memory card by default (This is extremely rare).
Q. What if my memory card is not appearing at all?
A. Photo Recovery Guru can often still see it, and recover files back from it. Even in some severe cases. Click on the “Devices” tab next to “Volumes” to see every device that is available. Download the demo and see!
Q. What if I have completely formatted my device?
A. It makes no difference to Photo Recovery Guru if the device has been completely formatted 100 times or still has a filesystem. It will search through the entire device irrespectively and pick up any data remnants, which formatting a drive does not affect at all.
A. The only things that can typically deter it are the following:
One is if the file you want back has been written over since you deleted it.
Two is if the device has been secure-erased, in which case nothing can get it back.
A third possibility with Photo Recovery Guru is that you are using a camera that does not mount in the Finder. This is particularly common with Canon cameras. In this case it is necessary to place the memory card in the camera into a memory card reader device, which will allow it to mount on your Mac like most other device types.
Overall, your best shot is downloading the demo in which case you’ll quickly be able to see if the files are still there.
