exFAT photo loss scenario
“Hi, I have a Canon digital camera which was formatted as exFAT by my brother. I took it to my trip outside of the city. We took hundreds of photos and videos clips. But the memory card running out of space, I have to delete some files to get more space for new photos. Unluckily, I press delete button accidentally after I just select a folder. I didn’t want to delete it, as it holds nearly 200 pics. Then I shut down the camera and took picture with my phone. Is there anything I can do to recover data from exFAT drive now?”
