Sony offers free recovery service for Memory Sticks


Sony has announced the launch of a new Memory Stick Data Rescue Service, which enables recovery of photography and data files which been lost or deleted. And it’s fred to download and use.

The online tool requires customers to register the Memory Stick model name and serial number before download of the recovery software can begin. The software can recover .jpg (DCF format), MPEG1 and .mp4 (MS Video File Format) files, plus most office data files including Powerpoint and Word documents. Once the Memory Stick is plugged in, the software guides you through seven steps, during which the files are verified, recovered and resaved.

The Memory Stick File Rescue software is compatible with all Sony Memory Stick cards sold since 1998. The success of the file recovery is dependent on the state of the data and whether or not it has been overwritten.

You can download the software here.
