Re: vlab

none of these programs will work so please stop trying, if you done a low level format then all is lost, let me explain as best I can to you on how it works.

Normal format just removes the first digit of each file, so computer or camera does not see anything but is recoverable because if you know what the file is you can put that first digit back, or some programs do most of work for you but not always with success.

Low level format however changes every single digit (byte) for a zero, so you see, it is useless because you cant even see part of a file because it does not exist.

intelligence services can use costly xray scanners to scan the chips for ghosting, but that's another story and can take months.
