Re: Corrupt raw file issue

I'm struggling with corrupt raw files. I've reformatted my sd card several times and keep having the same issue. There's a purple overlay, and weird sections of previously deleted images. See attached - the (bad hospital lighting!) photo of the banners is the image I took, but the two sections on the righthand side are of an image that I took months prior and had deleted from the card. Also as you can see, this is only happening in the raw format - the jpg doesn't have this issue (but I would prefer to edit in raw).

Can you help me figure out:

  1. How to recover this image?
  2. How to prevent this from happening again?

Products are:

  • Sony 128GB SF-G Series UHS-II SDXC Memory Card
  • Sony Alpha a7 III
  • Files pulled from iMac (card slot in back) running Mojave OS, v.10.14.6

Does it happen with a different card?
