Two of us here at WebsiteForensics spent 32 days on a road-trip down to the East Coast of Canada. It was bliss: the people, the places, the food. This is Canada’s best kept secret.
Unfortunately, on our way through Montreal, we thought it would be a great idea to stop by the Atwater Marché for some produce. That’s when it happened: a smash and grab. In just a few minutes, our laptop, cameras, backpacks were stolen. All our pictures had been downloaded to the computer, so there we were with bags of apples and carrots but no pictures from our trip save the 200 or so still on the camera they didn’t manage to steal. What a nightmare.
Back at the office, Blake asked us for our SD Flash cards. We weren’t quite sure what for since we told him we had wiped off hundreds of images when we downloaded them to the stolen machine. He walked away and started working furiously on his machine. We had no idea what he was doing when he called us over.
On his screen were hundreds of images we thought we had lost forever. You see, Flash drives are like hard drives, the data is never really erased unless you do a full rewrite of every byte. Luckily, if you have not over-written to much of the data, you can recover deleted images on a flash drive with the right software.
Thanks to FileSalvage 7 from SubRosaSoft.com, Blake was able to recover hundreds of our lost images! Well worth the cost of the software, memories are priceless.
We’re still reading the classifieds over at Montreal.Craigslist every day…
