Sending files and memory cards

You can upload your corrupt JPG files or your memory card directly to our upload server. Using this direct upload gives you the advantage that you don`t have to send in a data carrier via postal way. If you still have the original data carrier, please don´t write new data on your memory card or use it in any other way (Even the repeated try to read out a damaged memory card could damage the card further).

Please note that there are better chances of success in restoring images in the case that we get from you the original memory card (i.e. the memory card on which the failure first appeared). When you send us photo files copied from the original data carrier, you send us the 'failure with these files'. If we get the original data carrier (e.g. a SD card), we can better examine the JPG files with our software.
