If you were in too big of a hurry over the holiday season and delete files from your card unintentionally, don’t panic. Photo Rescue is a great little program, that is reasonably priced and works beautifully if you have not re-formatted your card or used it and written over the files. Three versions of Photo Rescue are available starting at $29 street, and the best part is you can download a trial version which allows you to determine if it will be able to retrieve your files before you buy it. If you can see your files, purchase the program and then move the retrieved files onto your computer.  Disaster averted.
