CF cards or Compact Flash cards are generally used in digital cameras & mobile phones as an external storage, to store pictures & videos that you click using them. Sony CF cards are one of the popular memory card brands available in the market. But there are certain situations when you will lose your media files stored on your Sony Compact Flash card. There is no need to worry as the Sony CF recovery utility will be able to perform Sony CF card recovery without any difficulty. The deletion or loss can be because of accidental deletion or formatting of the card, improper ejection from the camera or mobile phone, virus infection, etc. Let us see some of these in detail -

  1. Deletion – Deleting an important file from the Sony CF card instead of removing unwanted ones, is the most common reason of losing data. Sometimes while deleting a single picture, the user might erase all of them by accidentally pressing Delete All option on cameras like Sony Xperia, Samsung, LG and so on. Click here to recover photos from Sony Xperia. Deletion can be unintentional when the CF card was connected to a system as an external device. This is due to the fact that the files erased from an externally connected device are not moved to the Recycle Bin or Mac Trash. The user might also delete files intentionally thinking that there is a backup but later realizes their mistake.

  2. Formatting – Formatting means to remove each and every bit of data from the drive which is being formatted. Like deletion, formatting can also be accidental or done knowingly. Sometimes the user is forced to format the drive which shows format error due to corruption. In any of the ways, formatting leads to a huge data loss. As the format option is readily available to all the users along with the Rename and Eject option, therefore chances of accidental format are very frequent. So, an efficient recovery tool like Sony Card recovery should be kept handy.
  3. Transfer Interruption – Suppose you connected your Sony CF card to a system to transfer some files and during the process, your system shuts down. After rebooting when you open the CF card, you find that the files that were being transferred are not there. This might also lead to the corruption of the Sony CF card. The interruption in the transfer process can also be due to abruptly ejecting the CF card from the system or manually terminating the process.
  4. Virus Infection – Files saved on the Sony CF card might get deleted or lost when an infected file is saved on the card or the card is connected to an already infected computer system. The Sony CF card data may also get deleted due to anti virus scanning. The reason is that the antivirus program might not identify the file type and treat it as a threat.
