How do you recover lost images?

Have you ever lost images kept on a hard disk? I guess I am not the only one that would reluctantly answer that question with a "yes". Were they maybe even on a redundant disk array, a "RAID" system for extra safety? Member Geoff Baylis (GBaylis) experienced that dreadful moment when he lost all of his images, several TB of data due to a Windows 10 glitch prior Christmas 2018.

Read how he kept a cool head and managed to restore the images, which tools came in handy and how to prevent this from happening to you in the first place. See his article

I am wishing you some great captures and a data-loss-free upcoming weekend,
Bo (bgs)
