Recovering Data from Flash Drives
and Memory Cards
USB flash drives are used to carry files around, while memory cards such as SD, SDHC, Compact Flash or SONY Memory Stick are used in a variety of devices such as cell phones, digital cameras and MP3 players. While these solid-state storage media appear as drive letters in Windows, their principle of operation is very different from hard drives. As a result, they require a different approach to recover information.
Disadvantages of RAW Shooting
There are of course some clear disadvantages of shooting RAW. RAW files cannot be printed or viewed as easily as JPEG’s. They must be processed with proper software for best results. Naturally, their main disadvantage is the time required to process RAW images.
In film era, there were slides and prints. In today’s digital world, there are RAW’s (digital negatives) and JPEGs (digital pictures). Photographers have polarized opinions on shooting one format or another. Digital SLR and mirrorless cameras have been offering the ability to shoot RAW for a long while. Many photographers are switching from shooting JPEG to capturing images in RAW format for some obvious and some less obvious reasons.
RAW Format Support
Although hardware manufacturers report of doubling the size of hard drives and memory cards with amazing regularity, the reliability of these media remains almost the same it has always been. Which means that chances are high that data may be lost due to hardware failures, power interrupts or jumps and errors in the file system. When accidents happen and valuable information is lost, an efficient data recovery tool is what every user needs.
