Calagaz media recovery service can help when...
Lost family photographs, important documents, or your music & videos? Calagaz Photo's Media Recovery Service is a service to help customers recover their data from damaged media cards by using a powerful software engine that has been designed to allow the optimum recovery of accidentally deleted or corrupted files. Calagaz will attempt to restore your media card(s) that are damaged or accidentally reformatted. It can also recover accidentally deleted photos. Please note, however, not all media can be recovered.
CALAGAZ MEDIA RECOVERY SERVICE CAN HELP WHEN...
- Files have been inexplicably been lost
- Card corruption has occurred
- Files have been accidentally deleted*
*The card must function and be in a readable state. We can usually recover data when it has been accidentally deleted, but this is dependent on various factors such as how the files were deleted or how much the device has been used after the files were lost.
If you find that your images have been deleted or your memory card is corrupt, the most important thing to do is to turn off your device immediately and do not try to fix it yourself. Also, do not take anymore pictures. This could further damage your files or make the recovery process more difficult to retrieve any data.
If the data is recovered, you will receive a CD or DVD of all images that were restored. If the data was NOT able to be recovered, you will receive your media back, and a full refund. To take advantage of this service, bring your media card to either of our store locations or you can mail your card to us.
