Don’t panic simply because your precious or customer photos (if you are a photographer) have been deleted. You should only worry when you have exhausted all the avenues of recovering the photos. Panic is what pushes one to try inappropriate methods of recovering the data thereby ruining the SD card.
2 .Adding data to SD memory card
After photos, videos, audio files or any other data in the SD card is deleted, that data remains within the fine sectors inside the SD memory card and it just requires a reliable data recovery programme to recover it.However, adding new data to the card means that the existing data is overwritten by the new one and it therefore becomes impossible to recover any deleted data including photos.

Don’t try to recover the photos from the card using method that you are not sure about. This might cause a permanent damage to the SD memory or the device that you use to take the photos. Moreover, it can hinder the recovery of the deleted photos when you later find a reliable recovery method.
4. Physical Damage
Don’t cause any physical damage to the SD memory card. Any damage may prevent the recovery.
