I have unintentionally formatted the SDXC card from my Sony camera and realised that I had not downloaded all the Photos and Video from it. I have tried various recovery programmes a couple of which are showing at least 3 to 4gb of data on the card but in file formats that cannot be opened and read/displayed. These are .INP and .INT The Camera used was a Sony RX10M3 and the SDXC card is a Lexar Professional 64GB To date I have tried, RECUVA, ZAR, EASEUS DATA RECOVERY, LEXAR DATA RECOVERY, all without success. The nearest has been EASEUS but the recoverd files are not in a readable format. I think now the problem is more about how can i read the .INP and .INT files as these appear to have been recovered from the card but nothing I have, including the Sony software that goes with the camera will open them.

  • It may be worth adding details of the recovery programmes you've tried so people don't suggest ones that haven't worked for you. Some programmes also have different "modes of operation" (usually affecting how long they take to run) - so if you could include those details as well people may be able to suggest which other modes may be worth trying (if they have had success in your scenario). – dav1dsm1th Aug 11 at 12:03

  • I'd suggest superuser for that question, it is mainly about computer operation... there is mostly no difference whether a camera or a computer put the files on the card... – rackandboneman Aug 15 at 21:39

PhotoRec always did a good job when I needed it. JPEG and RAW .
