The Compact Flash card or the CF card is a popular flash memory card. It is faster than other types of memory cards like SD, MemoryStick, SmartMedia, and xD-Picture Card & can store up to 64GB of data. But like any other device, data loss might happen to the Compact Flash cards also. But don’t worry as the pictures that are deleted or lost from a CF card can be easily retrieved because they are not permanently gone, only their memory space is made available for other files by the operating system. Using a reliable recovery tool, any missing files can be restored from the CF card,
Let’s see some image loss scenarios –
Improper removal of the connected card from the system – When a digital camera having a compact flash card is removed from the system, during the file transfer stage, there are very high chances of the data getting lost. This might also result in the corruption of that particular CF card. Similarly, if the CF card is removed abruptly from the camera without safely removing it, then the pictures are likely to go missing.
Accidental or Intentional deletion of pictures – The most common reason for the loss of pictures is the accidental deletion. Sometimes you even intentionally delete some images and later realize that you need them. This kind of mistaken deletion can occur with any memory cards like SD, SDXC, SDHC.
Loss due to a sudden system shutdown – While transferring some files from the CF card to the system or while accessing the files from it, if the system gets shut down, then also you might lose all the files from the CF card. This is because the operating system was working on those opened files and sudden shutdown does not allow it to close them properly. The reasons for shutdown can be a power surge, a forced restart while installing some software or intentionally switching off the system using the Power button.
Unintentionally formatting the CF card – Suppose you want to delete some unwanted photos from your camera CF card to make room for other files, and accidentally hot on the Format option. The Format operation will erase all your pictures and other files permanently. This might also happen while ejecting or renaming the CF card.
Frequent use in different devices – CF cards are compatible to be used in different devices, but this kind of frequent use might leave the card in a corrupt state.
To recover photos from CF card due to any of the above-mentioned deletion/lost scenarios, the SDXC card recovery tool can be of greater help.
