How to Restore Travel Photos Deleted from Digital Cameras

A travel photographer's worst nightmare used to be the fear of losing exposed rolls of film; before seeing the results of months on the road, fully developed.

Photo Recovery Software
The good news is that there's plenty of software options to help us travel photographers get back our precious travel photos, but not all of them are created equal.

Much like anything, you pretty much get what you pay for. The free programs I tried - PC Inspector Smart Recovery and Free Undelete - didn't work for me. But that's not to say they won't rescue your travel pics. It's said that PC Inspector is slow, so maybe I just didn't give it enough time to inspect my 8 GB card.

I then tried Card Recovery (free trial). With the SanDisk in my laptop's card reader, thumbnail images of the photos taken in Nancy and Luxembourg started to appear; but the process was taking way too long. I felt inspired that at least the images were still there.

That might have been third time lucky, but Recover My Photos turned out to be my four leaf clover; delivering over 350 thumbnail previews of my recent travels around France, in blizzard blinding

When recovering the files, I chose to put them in a new folder on the desktop; to make sure everything was there.
