Compact Flash (CF) memory cards are portable, very small removable storage devices which are used to store large amount of data. There are two types of CF cards i.e. Type I and Type II. Difference between these two memory cards is only the thickness. CF cards are less prone to mechanical failures because, CF cards do not contain any moving parts and provide high protection of data compared to magnetic hard drives. CF cards use only 5% of the power needed by small drives. CF cards use flash memory, which is used for fast and easy data storage. Initially flash memory cards were using flash file system and JFFS (Journaling Flash File System) but now, to use these memory cards in consumer devices it is usually formatted in FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32 file system.
Generally, CF cards are used in PDA’s, digital cameras, MP3 players and other electronic devices. Even though these cards are having high protection of data, but there is a chance of logical failures of CF drive which may result in data loss. In such situation, you can make the use of Photo Recovery Software to get back your lost data. With the help of this utility you can easily perform corrupted memory card data.
