  • Scanning a Card

    When Image Rescue 5 launches the scan window will be displayed. Choose the card to scan using the pull-down menu. Click Start to begin the scan. After the scan is completed, some additional processing will occur, and then thumbnails of any found photos are added to the Image Recovery Window.

  • Recovering Files

    The Image Recovery Window displays either a thumbnail image or a generic icon if the photo is damaged or is a movie. To recover a file, you can double-click it to open in its default viewer, or select one or more files and click Recover. If you click Recover, select the folder where you want the recovered files to go.

  • Formatting

    Disclaimer: Lexar Media assumes no liability for damage to the customer's equipment or data caused by the use or misuse of the format functions. These processes are designed to remove all data from a storage device.

    Format will initialize a card with the choice of FAT or exFAT filesystem for use with a camera.

    Secure Format can be used to permanently delete all information from a card. Before the process begins, you have the option of selecting a filesystem to use (FAT or exFAT).

    exFAT should only be used if you know your camera supports it.
