Sandisk Rescue Pro Software

I bought a couple of Sandisk Memory Cards recently and they came with a “free” download of Rescue Pro Software.

After a stupid, basic mistake on my part – I needed to recover the images on one of the cards.

All I can say is this bit of “free” software saved the day for me.

It recovered all my RAW and jpeg images – including ones taken weeks ago.

The card has been reformatted in the camera several times since I’ve had it, so I am amazed to see images I thought had been lost through several reformatting procedures.

Five big, life saving Gold Stars from me for this super freebie from Sandisk.

Hi, just to add, this software saved me too after spending out on a photography course. All I can say is what a peace of kit. But I learnt a lesson and soon purchased some back-up units to back-up my pics.

ive used it, was on holiday in the DR, took easy 800 frames.....got a bit drunk on the last day, and whilst taking a long exp. night shot, i removed the card mid frame......

cue 2 days of sulking, thinking i'd lost every shot........according to my pc, the card needed to be formatted....

thank you sandisk !

I've just installed the Deluxe version, and in a twisted way, I'm looking forward to using it. Smile

May you never experience the stomach churning "will I get my images back or not" feeling - it is awful.

When the software proudly tells you it has recovered your lost image from the card - you feel like having a large beer or four - after you have saved and renamed the files that is.
