Yesterday, I spent 3 hours taking pictures of birds (RAW) in the desert this time of year and had accidentally formatted the card after thinking I had transferred all of them onto my computer, I realized I was viewing and not transferring.

Since you are posting on the Nikon D7100 forum, is there any chance that you have another card still in the camera? Depends how you have the second card configured. These days, I have my D7100 cards set up for backup.

You need to review your data practices. I always keep the SD cards until I've well and truly copied and processed the images. You just need a few spare cards, and I prefer 8Gb or 16Gb rather than the higher capacity types.

Good luck with your recovery. One tip is to make a copy the media before trying diverse recovery programs; failed attempts may further scramble the data.

Windows copy utilities   (Yes, I know that you have a Mac).

You can also use the D7100 system to copy cards.
