very nice and very useful i like the product.



I'm recommending your software to my brother who has lost 8 Terabytes of pictures. Mostly CR2 files and Photoshop files. I do not see them supported in your software. Can he retreive CR2 and PSD files?


Frank Koppelmans

Hello Frank,

As you can see on the below screenshot (open URL), software has inbuilt capability to scan and recover CR2 file formats. Along with this, software also scans and recover PSD files created using any latest Photoshop versions.

I definitely believe that this software will certainly recover CR2 and PSD files and you may freely recommend it to your brother.

Feel free to ask if there is anything else you'd like to know.

Hello, I use Canon S95 camera. I can only see all file names in SD card but cannot copy out to computer. Also cannot read the image in any camera or computer. Could this software helps? Please advise. Thank you. (I don't know what is CR2 /CRW)...



Hello Sam,

The software will be of helpful if your SD card is recognized by the Software. For this, you can download the "Free Trial" version of our software and see further.
By the way, I can guess either there might be some incompatibility issue between the memory card and the computer or you can also recheck the connection between your SD card and computer. You can alternatively try direct SD card slot/USB cable/card reader to get your card read by the computer. CR2 /CRW are Raw file format and are supported by exclusively Canon Camera models.
