Easily Recover the Data from Your SD Card [with Pictures]

If the data on your SD card was damaged, corrupted or accidentally deleted, don’t worry. You can recover the data easily with data recovery software.


One of my friends wanted to export her beautiful photos from her SD card a few days ago, but she found all data was lost, you can imagine how sad she was. She came to me and asked what she could do to get her previous photos and the job documents back. You may have run into the similar issue with my friend, the important data is lost, corrupted or damaged, and you don’t know how to recover the data. But don’t worry. You can easily recover the data with good data recovery software, which helped my friend to recover all her data.

Can I recover the data even if the data is damaged?

If you experience a logical hard drive failure, you can recover the data easily. But if you experience a physical hard drive failure, you may need to replace the drive with a one.

Two common cases belong to the logical drive failure:

Case 1: The data is accidentally deleted. You can’t see the data on the drive any more, but actually the data is still stored on the physical drive. It won’t be removed physically until is overwritten by other files.

Case 2: The data is inaccessible or damaged. In this case, the data can be encrypted or hidden. And a virus software probably is the cause.

For the above two cases, you can just use data recovery software to recover the data. If your SD card can’t even be recognized by your computer, you probably experience a drive physical failure. You may need to ask assistance from a data recovery expert or company. But you can expect this cost more than using data recovery software. Some good data recovery software can even help you achieve data recovery from a physical hard drive failure.
