3rd App and Attempt to Recover Files

#1 Post by dawnessa » 07 May 2017, 16:32

I deleted images from a Compact Flash card and shot an additional 640+ images. I have used two other recovery apps: RecoverX and CardRescue. Bother recovered many files, but not the images I shot yesterday morning.

Is it conceivable that PhotoRec could recover images that the other apps could not?
If so, can you direct me to step by step instructions to recover from a Compact Flash card connected through a card reader on a Mac running OS 10.9.5?

I can't seem to figure out how to access the card through the terminal window application... but I have no experience working in this environment.

Thank you for any advice or assistance.

To learn to use PhotoRec you can read https://www.cgsecurity.org/testdisk.pdf
Unfortunately you have probably overwritten your deleted pictures with the new ones, it's why the other tools you tried didn't work.
