I accidentally deleted the files on my SD card. How can I recover them?

by Lee Koo (ADMIN) ModeratorCNET staff - 1/15/10 11:56 AM

Question:

I accidentally deleted the files on my SD card. How can I recover them?


What is the best way to recover deleted photos, videos, and music from an SD
card from my Canon camera? I accidently pressed a wrong button, and presto, a lot of photos, videos, and music disappeared. I don't know whether I can get them back. Any information and solutions will be very welcome, especially the solutions that you have personally used and have had success with. Thank you very much in advance.
