Somehow, one of my CF cards got corrupted the other day before I could copy the pictures to my computer. After a brief panic, I ended up trying (and then purchasing) Photo Rescue to recover the files. The weirdest part was that there were dozens of other files that the program found on the card -- some dating back more than a year! Even though I format the card in the camera regularly, a lot of those old files must not have been overwritten. Very strange.
Photo Rescue is pretty nifty and seemed to do the trick (it recovered all except one picture..), though I hope I don't have to use it again.
At any rate, I was able to recover this lovely picture of lee lee and I wearing matching PPLM t-shirts. Hooray!
