How to recover deleted JPEG images from a Compact Flash Card

JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a file format, which is most frequently used to save photographs on the digital cameras. JPEG has turned into a default file format for most of the DSLR cameras due to small size. It produces relatively good image quality. Earlier, most of us were not able to store photos effectively due to large file sizes and relatively small storage devices. JPEG images can be compressed without losing too much of the image data during reformatting. Now days, almost all digital cameras can save images in different file formats such as TIFF, TIF, PNG, BMP, GIF, PSD, CR2, CRW, DNG, RAF, RAW etc. To store large number of pictures, different types of the memory cards are available in the market. Memory cards use the flash memory to store a number of images on it. A Compact Flash memory is a non-volatile storage device, which retains all photographs until you intentionally remove them. Compact Flash cards are also not vulnerable to mechanical failures because, they do not have delicate moving parts like hard drives. But, they may get corrupted due to some logical failures. In such case, you need to use relevant memory card recovery tool to restore JPEG image files from a compact flash cards.

Compact Flash card generally uses the FAT32 file system to arrange and organize files on it. File system stores allocation information about each photo stored on the flash card. When you try to open the image, file system searches for that image file. If it is found in its file allocation table then it opens the image file else it reports an error message. There are instances when you cannot access the pictures from the Compact memory card due to a file system corruption. File system may get corrupted due to various reasons like virus infection, improper system shutdown when the file is being accessed by the computer, inappropriately removing the memory cards, power failures etc. When file systems get corrupted, pictures stored on memory card become inaccessible resulting in loss of image files. In a few cases, you may accidentally delete the images from the flash storage card when it is connected to the system. When you delete images from a memory card, they are not moved to Recycle Bin instead they bypass the Recycle Bin resulting in loss of images.

Always, take a backup of favorite photographs to avoid loss of images. Make use of “Safely Remove Hardware” icon to properly disconnect the Compact flash card from the computer.
