    I recently moved some photos from my SanDisk FlashCard to my PC hard drive using Windows (XP) Explorer. Later I overlayed some of them on the hard drive by accident. Is there a way to unerase the picture files on the FlashCard? I tried Norton SystemWorks but it only unerases files on hard drives.

    If you have not formatted the card in camera, you might be able to recover some or all of them.

    You can get a free trial version of PhotoRescue HERE. The free version will show you what can be recovered, but (I think ) you have to buy it to get the full recovery option.

    I tried it and it did show me things I thought were gone forever...the version has changed since, but snoop around the site.

    Most good photo shops should be able to do that for you. Even getting images of a formatted card is possible.

    We use the Photorescue software mentioned. Good stuff.
