“After clicking some photos on my Canon camera, I was previewing them. Later I had connected the camera’s memory card to the system for some work. When I connected the SD card and opened it I was shocked. All the photos that I clicked were not to be seen. The folder in which the CR2 images were present was empty. So I removed the card and inserted it into the camera to check if I can see the RAW CR2 files in it. But now I wasn’t able to access the card and got a message asking me to format the SD card. I formatted it after a lot of hesitation. Now I want to know if it is possible to recover lost CR2 files from formatted SD card.”
