Issue about Losing Data of CF Card

“RAW files recovery from a formatted (accidentally) CF card? I am using a Sandisk Extreme 60MB/s CF card. I accidentally format the card in m 5D2. There were some photos in there, in RAW format. Is it possible to recover them? Hope someone can recommend me some special tool / application to do this recovery…”

“Corrupted Transcend CF Card. Need photo recovery software. I recently bought an 8GB Transcend Memory card for my camera. During a recent trip, I took many pictures. I noticed upon trying to import the pics into lightroom that it was giving me an error for some of the pics (quite a few, actually). The pictures are still viewable in Preview and I can import them into iPhoto and export the .NEF as a JPEG from there, but I’d like to try and recover the original NEF if possible. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good (and preferably free) Data recovery software, so I can get the pics back with full RAW capabilities? Thanks!”
