Hassle-free photo recovery with Flash Recovery Toolbox
Flash Recovery Toolbox (download) is a compact and reliable solution intended for image recovery from a number of portable media formats and hard drives.
Today, when the number of files that we download from the Internet and digital devices is steadily growing, accidental removal of necessary data becomes a serious threat. Sometimes users remove important folders to free up some space on the drive to accommodate large files, sometimes we forget that the necessary folder is hidden within another one and press the "Delete" button without hesitation, sometimes data are corrupted due to a power failure or other circumstances that we cannot control or prevent. There are a number of other reasons that may require urgent photo recovery: corruption of files on portable media when the card is pulled out while the camera is still on, turning off the camera during the write process, accidental turn-off's, corruption of essential areas on the drive, etc. Fortunately, Flash Recovery Toolbox allows you to restore your lost or deleted files, images and photos. The application performs image recovery from drives with all variations of the FAT file system: FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32, and does not require any special knowledge or advanced IT skills. To make picture recovery faster and more reliable, the creators of Flash Recovery Toolbox implemented several recovery mechanisms and methods working simultaneously to achieve the best result. Please note that the unregistered version of the program allows to perform foto recovery only for the first 5 items appearing on the list of previously deleted files.
Flash Recovery Toolbox performs picture recovery from the following popular portable media:
- Secure Digital Card (SD cards)
- xD Picture Card
- CompactFlash (type I/II) (CF cards)
- Sony Memory Stick

The process of foto recovery is carried out in 4 easy consequent steps of the program wizard described below.
After you have installed and started Flash Recovery Toolbox, the source drive selection screen will appear. The application will automatically scan the system for devices or drives with the FAT file system and display them. Choose the drive/device that contains the deleted files and press the Next button. If you cannot see the drive from which you need to recover your lost files, make sure that its file system is FAT, otherwise it will not be shown on the source drive selection screen. The next screen allows you to specify the path to the destination image recovery directory and view the information about the source and the target drives. It is recommended that the destination drive used for photo recovery has more free space than the source drive. When the Next button is pressed again, the analysis process begins. Please note that it may take the program some time to read the data from the source drive and report of the feasibility of image recovery. Once this process has finished, the program will automatically proceed to the next page.
The next screen contains the report of the files that have been detected on the selected drives. Users can select either separate files or attempt a bulk photo recovery. Irrecoverable items are highlighted in the grey color, which means that they cannot be recovered at all, or only partial recovery is possible. Once the user presses the Next button for the last time, Flash Recovery Toolbox initiates the process of picture recovery and starts saving the data to the specified destination folder. The last page displays the results of foto recovery, where successfully saved files have a green word saved opposite them. If the program was unable to recover a file, a short explanation will appear opposite the file name.
In a nutshell, Flash Recovery Toolbox saves you the trouble of having to deal with cumbersome drive analysis tools that do require advanced skills and are not recommended for inexperienced users - this program makes photo recovery an easy task that anyone can perform. You will not need to check your local photo studios to find out that they are not able to help you with your foto recovery problem. All you need is to have Flash Recovery Toolbox installed on your PC - it will make sure that none of your precious moments will ever get lost. Note that the application uses a picture recovery algorithm that is absolutely safe for your original data and portable media - they remain unchanged, as Flash Recovery Toolbox merely recovers the files and saves them to a location of your choice.
