For PhotoRec, the process looks a little more complicated but you're using Mac so you're probably already accustomed to these types of interfaces, as it's a command-line interface rather than a graphical/visual one. These steps will help you along the way so no need to worry.

  • Start up PhotoRec and enter your Mac password if prompted, so the program can have access to all drives.
  • Then, select the drive that you want to recover (i.e. your memory card) using the arrow keys to highlight the correct option.
  • Press enter to proceed, and choose the FAT16/32 partition in order to scan the directory structure set up by your camera.
  • Press enter to keep going to the next menu, and select the Other option (FAT/NTFS).

Continue to the next screen using the enter key. This next selection will tell the program where to look for the files. If you suspect the memory card is corrupted, use the "Whole" selection.
