Hi, I think you need to contact out support to get more details about this phenomena.
I purchased Wondershare Photo Recovery, and it seemed to work. However, when I try to view the pics, it say "no preview available". Does this mean my photo's were logically lost?
Hi, sorry to hear what has happened. I have to see it seems your memory card is attacked by virus. You might need to try an anti-virus program to check it first.
when I connected memorycard to windows 8 laptop all files changed to shortcut.and half of the memorycard deleted..wht to do? plz help..
Can you preview the photo in the scan result after scanning?
I have recovered pictures but when i open it, it says no preview available. Help me please to resolve this issue. thanks.
If you can only get back the thumbnail, the original picture may have been overwritten. When losing data on the memory card, stop using it as soon as possible. Any operation can make the lost data overwritten.
I haven't tried Wondershare yet but I've tried trial versions of other photo recovery tools. I get most of my lost photographs back but however I can only see a thumbnail verison of them. When I double click, they are grey. Just wondering if in anyway at all possible they can be recovered? these pics are very special to me, I was devastated when they got deleted.!
Maybe, not 100%. So you need to download the trial version of the program to scan it at first.
if i deleted a video in SD card and took some photos after that, will the photo overwrites the video?
