exif-untrasher-icon If you’ve ever accidentally deleted pictures from your digital cameras memory card, you’re not alone. That feeling of dread when you forever lose photographic evidence of memories and experiences in digital form can sometimes be resolved though. Exif UnTrasher is a Mac OS X app that does exactly that, it will attempt to recover deleted images from your memory cards, and it works pretty well. Here’s the caveat though, you have to be able to mount the digital cameras memory card as a volume on your Mac, which some cameras can do but others can’t. If your camera doesn’t support mounting of media, you can always just use an external card reader which works just as well.

Exif UnTrasher is not a miracle worker but in our test it recovered all images that were taken before a ‘Quick Format’ on a Canon digital camera, so I imagine the success rate depends largely on how the images were deleted from your memory card. Try it out, it’s free, it certainly won’t hurt anything, and it’s got a pretty good chance of working to get your deleted images back!

    I am one of the victim of these, I always forgot to have back ups of my pictures and it sounds so irritating sometimes that all the photos are lost.
