Recovery of the SD Card is quite a simple process, as long as you know what to do. This step-by-step guide will show you what needs to be done to get the SD Card back. This guide will only work with software we developed, so don’t try it with something else as it won’t work, and you might lose those files permanently.
If you have other data recovery software then looks for a guide for it. But if you don’t, then just download our software and follow the guide. It is simple, as you will see, and you won’t have any issues with recovering files you want
The guide for recovering data
- If you are looking to recover files (undelete), select “Recover Files”. In case your SD card is corrupted select “Search Drive”.
- Select scan destination. If you scan external device (USB / Memory Card) make sure to select the correct drive letter.
This will narrow down the search which will make it faster. Scanning large storage devices will take much more time than scanning of mobile devices and USBs. Be prepared to let software scan for hours if you can’t pinpoint the location from which you deleted the file.
Select scan type – “Normal scan” is good for files deleted recently, this scan method is faster. If you cannot find your lost files with the normal scan choose “Advanced Scan”. Please do not use your computer during the scan process.
- Please wait while RecoveryLion scan for lost files.
- Select files for recovery and click “Recover”.
You can select specific folders in the tree view or choose to display only Photos, Documents or Audio files.
This last part is simple as you get the full list of deleted and lost files. The list can be quite long as it might show everything you lost and deleted in last few days (everything that wasn’t overwritten during that time. Take your time to locate files you want to recover and confirm that you want to get them back.
