In response to yesterday’s post about losing images in the cold, a number of folks have suggested possible remedies for future data loss:
- Nick Wilcox-Brown recommends PhotoRescue, saying “It has saved my skin on more occasions than I care to remember.”
- My fellow Photoshop PM Tom Hogarty mentioned Camera Salvage.
- Peter Krogh suspects that the problem was due to file system corruption, not cold weather–particularly as I’d been sloppy in handling the memory card (removing it from the Mac while it was sleeping, then inserting it with the new shots before waking the machine up). That seems possible, though having lost images in similar weather with a different camera, card, and computer, I remain a bit suspicious.
