Command Situation of Memory Card Data Loss

Situation 1: Mistakenly delete files from memory card-I have an 8GB SD card in my Cannon camera and I took many photos with my camera last week. However, when I want to delete some not so good photos, I mistakenly delete some other precious family photos.

Situation 2: Format memory card-I transferred all the files from my CF card to my laptop, and then I formatted the CF card. But I cannot find some important wedding videos when my friend asked me for them yesterday. I doubt I didn’t transfer the videos to my laptop successfully before the card was formatted.

Situation 3: Memory card not formatted error-When I connect my Micro SD card to my computer. The Windows pops up “the card is not formatted, do you want to format it now?” I cannot format it because I have many important images inside, but I have no way to access the data if I don’t format the card.

Situation 4: Memory card is not recognized-My laptop cannot recognize my SD card when I connect it with card reader. Then I tried to connect it to my laptop via USB cable, but it doesn’t work either.
