Recently I connected my memory card to Windows computer via card reader for transferring valuable pictures taken during my office trip. When I opened it I got a message like “the drive needs to be formatted, do you like to format it now?” I do not understand what to do as I have not taken backup of very important pictures and other files. I am in fear of losing pictures present in the memory card. Can anyone suggest me software to fix this issue and retrieve images stored on it?
