Photo loss problems boil to many factors. Generally, they are attributed to physical faults and soft faults. If photos are overwritten or lost due to physical damage, the only solution is resorting to professional data recovery companies. Although most of the time they can recover lost photos, the cost is very high because special equipment will be used. Therefore, in daily life and work, we should try our best to prevent physical damage.
As to data loss problems caused by soft faults, professional data recovery software can solve them easily. We suggest the free data recovery software MiniTool Power Data Recovery which can be downloaded from the official website https://www.powerdatarecovery.com/. It supports all common Windows operating systems including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.
