Recover Canon Digital camera CF card

A Compact Flash card or a CF card is one of the popular flash memory cards. Canon digital cameras use this CF card as their primary storage device. The pictures or videos that you capture are stored on the attached CF card. But this CF card is prone to data loss due to which you might lose all your favorite memories in the form of pictures. There can be a list of reasons due to which the photos might go missing or gets deleted.

Let’s see some of the common issues where the need of a Canon Photo Recovery tool will be a must –

  1. Deletion – The most commonly occurring data loss scenario is deletion. This can occur accidentally or intentionally. Sometimes while deleting an unwanted photo, you might accidentally select your favorite one & delete it or you delete a picture & later realizes that you need it back. When the camera is connected to a system & you delete a file using “Delete” option, the file will be permanently removed & you will not find it in the Recycle Bin. Most users make this mistake thinking that the file will be available in the Recycle Bin.
  2. Formatting – Formatting leads to a huge amount of destruction as all the files & folders are permanently removed from the device which is being formatted. Users might accidentally format the Canon CF card by selecting the “Format” option while ejecting or renaming it. While deleting a picture that you don’t like, you might select “Delete All” option accidentally, which will lead to loss of all your favorite photos & videos. There are times when the users might format the CF card intentionally, thinking that they have a backup, but later realizes the loss. The intentional formatting can also be done to get rid of a virus infection.
  3. Malware Attack – Suppose you connected your Canon CF card to a system that contains a serious virus infection, then there are chances that the CF card data is also infected. Depending upon the type of virus infection, the files might go missing or becomes inaccessible. If an infected file is saved onto the CF card then also there are chances that other files are affected.
