How to Unformat SD Card

Difference between format and delete:

Formatting an SD card clears all previous data from the card. We’ll compare deleting and formatting to help you understand the concept of formatting. The main difference between deleting and formatting is that deleting only removes the pointers to the file and the actual file still remains on the card. On the other hand, formatting clears data on the card and prepares it for use.

So, when you format a card, all data on it is wiped out. While it is good practise to format a card occasionally to maintain the health of an SD card, it is important that you have a backup.

Sometimes, there may be situations when you accidentally format an SD card and you don’t have a backup. If you need to recover data in these cases, it’s professional data recovery tools to your rescue.
