deleted files on camera

[ Edited ]

I have a question. I accidenlty formatted al my files on my camera and I need them. Can I bring them into a best buy and have them repair it for me and get the lost files back. How much would it cost too to get it fixed


also I dont c this as impossible as there are things u can buy to get them back I tried a demo but i couldnt save them cause I would of had to purchase the program which was over 100 bucks which is not worth it

You mean you lost your photos right?


Data recovery on flash memory cards is virtually impossible.

Hi ddog,


You can bring your memory card to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy® store, and they could send the memory card out to the service center to attempt a data recovery to get your images back. Data recovery is never a guaranteed success. The Geek Squad® charges $59 for the initial assessment, and the data recovery itself starts at $259. You could try recovering the data yourself by using a data recovery program, and I wrote about this here. I hope this information helps out!
