FAQ Memory

FAQ for camera memory chips, memory sticks and other removable flash memory devices

Q Can you restore my corrupt memory card

    A Almost certainly yes, memory cards can be corrupted for many reasons, but as long as the data has not been overwritten, CnW Recovery can restore the files.

Q Why are the names of files sometimes lost in recovery

    A Often the reason that a memory card cannot be read is that the directory structure has been corrupted.  Files are recovered by reading the memory at a very low level.  For photos, the name is fortunately often not relevant
