Possible to Recover Lost Photos from Corrupted Memory Cards
Many casual behaviors can cause the memory card corruption. For example, the memory card was ejected constrainedly when the camera is still on, you take photos when the battery is low, you turn off your camera when photos are still being transferred or written on, the memory card used in another camera without formatting it and so on. If unfortunately your memory card had already corrupted and you want to repair it, the common way is to format the card. But the formatting will erase all the contents. This is really awful.
If you do not want to buy a new memory card, you can choose to retrieve all the content from your corrupted memory card by using a data recovery program. Here I strongly recommend the iPubsoft Photo Recovery to help you recover lost, deleted or formatted pictures/photos from corrupted memory card.
Tips: If you are using a Mac, you can use the Mac version: Photo Recovery for Mac.
