Card Data Recovery is a simple, neat, and handy application that lets you quickly and easily recover files from various types of memory cards.
This powerful tool can recover any kind of data, may it be videos, music, documents, images, archives, and so on. Furthermore, it can recover the data from various types of memory cards (SD cards, CF cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Duo, etc.) but also from local hard drives, external hard disks, USB Flash sticks, and other storage devices.
Card Data Recovery is very easy to use, as it comes with a wizard-like intuitive interface that guides the users step-by-step through the recovery process. I also like about it the fact that its interface previews recoverable image files and lets you listen to the recoverable audio files. Furthermore, it neatly classifies the recoverable files by their types (photo, music, etc.) and their formats (PNG, JPG, BMP, ICO, PSD, GIF, MP3, OGG, WAV, etc.). You can even use the advanced mode of the app to filter even further the files to be recovered. For example, you can search only for photos take with Nikon cameras.
The only downside of this tool is the fact that the free version doesn’t actually recover any file, it only lets you scan a specific storage device and view the recoverable files. In order to actually recover the scanned files, the full, registered version must be purchased.
Anyway, Card Data Recovery looks promising, so if you’re in need of recovering files, it could be worth a try.
