Digital cameras are devices which have both advantages and disadvantages. The advantage is that you can store the equivalent of a dozen rolls of film at a time, delete bad photos immediately and download the photos to multiple devices.
But like everything else, there can be a dark side to digital photography: memory card corruption. Not only you, but many of us have experienced it first hand, where a card that was working normally suddenly appears empty, or refuses to mount on your system and starts displaying strange error codes in the camera.
Of course, with the right software, you can recover photos from corrupted flash drive with the least effort.
Tips to prevent memory cards from getting corrupt:
- Never turn off the digital camera while photos are being transferred to the PC or vice versa.
- It is always advisable to reformat camera cards at regular intervals depending on how frequently you use the digital camera.
- Use the camera controls itself to reformat the memory card. Avoid using your computer for reformatting the memory card.
- If the memory card is having problems frequently, it’s probably time to invest in a new memory card before disaster strikes.
- Never eject the memory card while the camera is still ON.
- If you accidentally deleted images from a memory card or the memory card is corrupt, do not continue using it if you want to attempt data recovery, as the old files will be overwritten with the new files once this is done.

Computers using Windows 95 and 98 operating systems separate data on their hard disks using file allocation tables. Commonly referred to as FAT 16 and FAT 32 drives, these disk partitioning systems are prone to complete loss of data. Unfortunately, if one loses access to a segment of the hard drive due to a lost partition, on also loses access to the data contained within. Although few computers operators are still using systems divided by file allocation tables, there still needs to be a means to recover lost partitions and damaged file from these drives. For that reason, REMO has available FAT recovery software.
Computers with newer operating systems from Windows 2000 through to Vista use the NTFS partitioning system.
