How to Recover Deleted/Lost Files from SD Card?

As we know, SD Card (Secure Digital Card) is a non-volatile memory card format for use in portable devices, such as mobile phones, digital cameras, GPS navigation devices, and tablet computers. In these devices, SD card acts like a hard disk in desktop computers, where stores all kinds of system data and personal files. However, there will be risks if you did certain operations carelessly, like deleting an important SD card file by accident or formatting a SD card by mistake. It will be hard to get the file back as there are no Recycle or Trash function available for these device. And restoring the deleted/lost files becomes a tough task for most of common users who don't have much experience dealing with such issues.

 

To recover lost deleted/lost files on SD Card, there need to be certain data recovery software involved. Actually, I found out a few ones which claim to enable to restore all deleted/lost files. However, most of them failed after my tests. The only one which helped me fully recover deleted/lost files is Hasleo Data Recovery. This program has very sophisticated algorithms to detect the lost deleted/lost files on every storage device, like PC hard drive, external hard drive, USB flash drive and SD card. Please download and install the software first before heading to the next steps.
