Recover formatted CF card data?

Can I Recover formatted CF card data? I have the canon G1, I went to the Format menu to check the remaining MB space on my CF card, but I accidentally formatted my card. Can I recover the data?

Memorires, memories ... the times I have used the old original DOS 'Undelete' program ... hardly known now. I don't think anyone knows of an undelete for that situation. I've seen it said that Canon probably have the facilities to do it but no public prog I doubt. There's a few button-presses to get to FORMAT (do it) - no doubt it will help stop you repeating it .. lessons in life can be hard ..

Hi,

try one of the recovery free- or shareware programs on http://www.tucows.com

I used Recover98 on a SM card, and I could recover some of the files.

Good luck,

Mel
