Why Lost Memory Card Data Can be Retrieved?

When data is stored on memory card, the file system (such as FAT format) will record all information related to the files, like where and how the data is saved. When you delete the files or format the card, it only removes the appended information of the files, but the real data of the files is still there. Technically speaking, you can get back all lost files only if they are not overwritten and you know their data structure. Remember: When files are deleted or the card is formatted, the real data of the files are not under protection of the operation system. That is to say, the deleted data of the deleted files could be overwritten by any data at any time. Thus, once found data loss situation, you’d better immediately stop using your memory card to avoid real data overwritten by new generated files that will make lost files disappear forever. Then use card data recovery application to rescue the lost files from your memory card as soon as possible.
