Step 1. Download and Install Stellar Photo Recovery Software.
Download the trial version of the software. It is completely free to try and if the software fails in recovering your photos, you won’t have to pay anything. You will only be asked to support the developers and pay for the software if in fact the photos that you want back are completely recoverable. The free demo is available for both Mac and PC users.
Step 2. Make sure your memory card is connected to your computer and scan the drive.
If you want to recover photos that were either deleted by accident, that were stored on a disk that has been completely corrupted or formatted, click the “Start Scan” button on the right.
Step 3. Select the hard drive where your lost photos are located.
Now choose the appropriate drive for recovery. If your lost picture is located at E drive, please highlight the E drive, and click on the “Next” button.
Step 4. Choose your digital camera file type.
Choose the appropriate digital camera picture file type. If you are unsure, simply click select all.
The software will automatically scan your chosen drive, and list the found data on the screen as below:
Find the lost photos you would like to recover, highlight them and then click on the “Recover” button.
Note: Never Recover the Lost Data to the Same Drive that Your Lost Data was originally located! Please select another drive.
Select a destination folder for your recovered data. You can create a folder before you start the software, but do not create the folder in the same drive your lost data is located. If your lost data locates in the E drive, you should select D drive or F drive to be the destination for your recovered data. After the above three steps, the lost data will be recovered to the folder you had created previously.
