    Freeware Card Recovery Program for Photos

    I just thought in case anyone found it useful, I'd post this.

    For a friend of the family, I had reason today to try to recover files that vanished from her camera's SD card.

    When I got the card home, and put it in my reader, there were only 32 images visible in explorer on the card in Windows.
    I looked for a card recovery program, thinking if she wanted the photos badly, perhaps a cheap one was available,
    and found one called Digicam Photo Recovery, which did the job rather well, and rather quickly.

    The program is FREEWARE, and available here: http://www.aliensign.com/

    I was able to recover 127 images from the card, including the 32 that were still visible,
    one of which dated back as far as 2006, which I am assured is the correct date for that photo!

    Always useful to have something like that available, just in case. Thanks Chris.

    I'm having trouble with their link. Google does have a cache for their page, but it is not coming up in either of my browsers. Anybody else having trouble with their URL?

    Indeed, the link appears to be dead.
    HOWEVER,
    it is still available on C|NET for download:
