CF card formatted MANY times losing my images - chances?

#1 Post by DMLphoto » 05 Jun 2012, 22:21


Recently my Western Digital external HD had the smallest fall, and now the data on it is totally lost :( Don't by Western Digital!

The images in question were taken in Jan this year on three CF cards, and they've since been formatted, filled and formatted many times.

Is there any chance at all of recovering images from back in Jan from the CF cards?

Everything that weren't recovered by new files will be recovered by photorec. But if the card were already full since january, no way to recover.
