Recuva is free -
Recuva will find any kind of file at all, and has special modes for music, documents, videos, and emails, besides the standard photo recovery. The main drawback with Recuva is with disks that are completely corrupted. If Windows does not recognize the disk, Recuva cannot scan it.

Nothing is really free. It is worth to pay a little to get precious things back ! I have tested Recuva recovery programs and some only can recover 10% to 80% .The recovery program called Tenorshare Data Recovery absolutely works. I have done some tests on cards I have deliberately corrupted from 2 GB to 8 GB. All the photos have been recovered.

The flash file system of memory cards, although related to removable one, provides better support when you use recovery software, meaning that when you try to recover an image from a memory card the results are in most of the cases, very accurate. For better results, you should connect the card to a card reader attached to the PC into a USB 2.0 port for fast results and better scanning speed and then use the (Eg: Recuva) software to search for deleted images. First time you will open the application, a wizard will ask you what files you want to recover and from what location. For better results, when choosing the scanning mode, check the Deep Scan feature because with it the accuracy of finding deleted files greatly increases. Once files were found, save them to a different location, not in the original one. I have attached an image with the wizard's options.

When files deleted from android, the OS removes the pointer to the files from the file allocation table and flags the deleted files as no longer needed. in order to recover deleted data from Android memory card, you need to avoid writing data to the card or internal storage, then download Android Data Recovery. Plug in your device and set the USB setting as mass storage so that both the sd card and built-in storage should be recognized and mounted as removable drive, scan the drive, then recover the deleted pictures from android.
