In our continuing pursuit of protecting against data loss of any kind, Prosoft Engineering is proud to announce Picture Rescue...
Picture Rescue can:
1) Recover Deleted pictures from your digital camera media (single delete or delete all functions)
2) Recover pictures from a reformatted digital media card (except XD cards found in Olympus and Fuji cameras)
3) Recover pictures from a corrupt digital media card (one that is no longer mounting or showing up when plugged in to the camera or media reader)
Version 1.2.1 is compiled as a Universal Binary, which allows it to run on OS X 10.4 and later Intel based Macintoshes, as well as OS X 10.2.4 and later Power PC based Macintoshes.
