As is known to all, you can wipe out data from a CF card (Compact Flash card) by deleting or formatting. Generally, you can delete or format the CF card on your cell phone, desktop or camera. You may also know when you delete files or format the CF card, you are unable to find any information about the lost files on your card again. Another situation, you neither delete files nor format the card, but you are not allowed to access the card again since it says CF card error such as CF card not formatted, data is inaccessible, CF card raw, etc.
Is data lost permanently when you meet one of situation above? It depends! If you don’t make any effort to restore the data but continue putting more data to the card, unfortunately you lose the chance to recover the lost data. On the contrary, if you haven’t written any file to the card after data loss, you are likely to retrieve the lost files by using CF card recovery software.
