My good friend was visiting from Chicago and we'd spent the entire
day shooting in Muir Woods and the Marin Headlands. We'd gotten some spectacular
the redwoods, the San Francisco Bay, and the city skyline.
Mac or my card reader decided to be crabby that day -- nothing could read the
files, not even the Finder (-36 error). I put the card back into my d200 and
now IT couldn't read them either ("Card is Empty")! I tried the Disk
Utility program and after it "fixed" my volume, the files were still
unreadable and now they were all zero k instead of 15MB! i gave up in frustration
and formatted the card with my d200 and just resigned myself to shoot again
I'd shot another 20 or so images onto my card when a buddy in Aperture QA told
me that i could likely still recover some of my lost files. I didn't really
believe him, but i thought i'd try anyway... I bought CameraSalvage online,
downloaded it, and about 20 minutes later i opened the Salvaged Photos folder
and staring back at me were all my lost shots -- even after DiskUtility mangled
my card, even after i'd formatted it, and even after i'd begun shooting "over
the top" of them. I was beside myself. Not only had I "gotten back" a
lost day of shooting and car rental, I'd gotten back my memories of a great
day with an old friend.
