Formatting a memory card is same as formatting a hard drive, which set up the file system to organize the data on memory cards. There are two types of file systems that memory card supports i.e., FAT and NTFS. You need to format memory card when you are facing problems with your memory card. Formatting erases complete data and recreates the file system to arrange the data which can be further stored. Some digital cameras and other electronic devices do not support FAT32 file system. So, while formatting memory card by using FAT32 make sure that your device which uses memory card supports FAT32 file system. Sometimes you may accidentally format your memory card, in that situation no need to worry, you can use photo recovery software to recover deleted photos.
There are different scenarios where photo loss may occur. Sometimes, memory card may get corrupt due to virus attack, file system corruption or file system conversion errors which may results in photo loss. In few cases, while removing virus using antivirus programs from memory card may also result in data loss. Antivirus scans all the folders which are present on memory card. While scanning if it finds any virus which is harmful to your computer, then along with virus your data also get deleted by antivirus program. You may also lose data if you unplugged or abruptly pulled your memory card from card reader which is connected to computer. Because, your compute might be accessing your memory card internally for some other purposes, if you remove it abruptly without using safe to remove your USB device icon may also result in data loss. While capturing photos if your camera gets switched off due to low battery, then there is a possibility of photo loss. Because, your camera may be unable to write that picture to memory card resulting into photo loss. Sometimes, accidental deletion of photo may be a reason to photo loss.
Once you formatted memory card or accidentally deleted pictures from the memory card then avoid using that memory card to protect your data. While clicking new photos make sure that camera’s battery is completely charged so that it helps you to avoid photo loss. Creating a backup of your important photos may avoid these problems.
