The Weekend Ruined by My Trying-to-Smart-Anti-Virus

Jian Akiraceo Rant 26 Comments

Visited the zoo on Saturday to test out a zoom lens and meeting up with my cousins and animal friends. Was going to blog about it yesterday but fail to, all thanks to my trying-to-be-smart-anti-virus. It found a virus in my CF card, warned me about it and then deleted it…together with my photos!!!


Β T3T Super Duper Whooper Burger Sad!! Β There were some very very nice shots!!!

Photos is like one of the two things I can’t afford to lose. >.< The other one is my drawings. Its hard/impossible to get them back once its lost. The rest we can always download… opps I mean buy.

  1. Awww geez…what antivirus are you using? perhaps the virus contaminated your photos also…..cant retrieve it from the vault?

    I found out the photos are in there!! coz i can view them with my camera but not showing on my pc T3T

  2. Jian, can consider hosting your pics on Flickr as backup.

    Yeah, will do that πŸ™‚
    And thinking of hosting all my imgs out there

  3. try recover deleted files software?
    mayb can get back some

    It actually block the connection instead of delete them (thank God) coz i manage to view all the photos from my camera @@

  4. try using Power Data Recovery Pro v4.1.1
    i’ve been in your shoes once, and this program saves my life πŸ™‚

    Thanks!!! πŸ˜€
    i manage to find the photos in my camera..just that its not showing on my PC @@

  5. Oh no… πŸ™ Hope you can recover those photos using the suggestion from that comment above…

    But your drawing on how the antivirus works is very funny πŸ˜€

    hahaha thanks πŸ˜€
    now i just need to get a cable to transfer from my camera. coz my camera manage to view the photos (its in there! not deleted ^^)

  6. what a poor miao…..tell us the anti-virus software so that we won’t use that fucking smart-ass software…..i am currently using kaspersky…it has been a good boy till now….always ask me for permission to delete or quarantine…… or you can configure your anti-virus setting….

    ouu mine is Avast. pretty neat and very strict. will block and cutoff any connection that seems dangerous LOL

  7. Actually you can recover back all the files…the files might be deleted but nor for permanent..the data still available in your memory card AS LONG AS you never take much new can download the software to try to recover it..I’ve lost once over 400 pictures and i cleared my recycle bin as well that time…so i google n found the to recover all the 400+ photos just by scanning the memory card..try and see

    I know HDD can. XD nvr know CF can too

  8. oh no! πŸ™ losing the pics is such a heartbreaking moment man! πŸ™ try to get the pics back like how others suggested as above. πŸ™‚ all the best, mr. miao!

    Thanks lot!! πŸ˜€

  9. You can try to recover it using some software like data doctor or so. I often use tool like this to recover my stuff.

    Ouu thanks for the suggestion ^^

  10. ouch.. wtmiao!
    photos are the most importnat thing to me too… purposely bought an external harddisk just to store pictures

    woah.. i burned mine πŸ˜€

  11. Are you sure that the photos are actually deleted? Sometimes, the virus will turn your folders and files superhidden. It’s rare for viruses to modify your pics because those files are not executable and hence won’t do anything. When you check your memory card’s property, do you still see there are spaces being used up? Because if there are, and if it’s similar to the size used up before your pics were deleted by AV, most probably your files are still there, only superhidden.

    Checked. its in there but was the memory card formatted after that by my friend πŸ™ huhuhu
