Card recovery software

Posted on 11 June 2013


I have three options for card recovery software:

  • The free Transcent RecoveRX tool that came with my SD card reader.
  • The free Recuva software (it’s free, but not libre as in: it’s not open source). With the free version I’ve had pretty good results with restoring pictures from damaged cards.
  • The $ 40 Sandisk Rescue Pro software that came with my Sandisk SD card. This was a free 1 year subscription for windows and osX. After that year I got a $ 30 renewal offer for a new year. It seems like now I really have to choose between windows and osX.

All this software only works if the SD card is mounted by the OS!
