Step 1: Head over to the Download page.

Step 2: From the Download page’s bottom, choose Next.

Step 3: The Model name and the identification number or download code will be required.

Step 9: Click OK after selecting a folder to restore deleted photos. Keeping the images in the same spot where they were first stored is not a good idea because it makes the recovery process more difficult.

Step 10: Hold off on shutting down the program until the procedure is finished. Your photographs will be kept in the folder you previously designated.

The Final Word On How to Recover Data from Sony SD Cards?

I hope the above methods will help you recover data from Sony SD cards using the SD card data recovery software from Sony or Third-Party software like Photos Recovery. However, to avoid data recovery situations, it is advised that you create an alternate backup of all your important files so that you never lose any of your precious memories.
